Erdogan swipes at Russia, U.S. missions in SyriaANKARA/SOCHI (Reuters) - Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan took swipes at U.S. and Russian interventions in Syria on Monday and said if countries truly believed a military solution was impossible, they should withdraw their troops. Russian President Vladimir Putin and his U.S. counterpart Donald Trump said in a joint statement on Saturday they would continue to fight against Islamic State in Syria, while agreeing that there was no military solution to the country's wider, six-year-old conflict. "I am having trouble understanding these comments," Erdogan told reporters before flying to Russia for talks with Putin.
