“There’s information that the leadership of Daesh (ISIS/ISIL) is continuing secret contacts with the Turkish leadership,” Lavrov said during an interview with Russia’s Moskovsky Komsomolets daily.

“They’re discussing various actions in the current conditions under our Aerospace Forces’ airstrikes seriously limiting their traditional routes of smuggling,” Lavrov added.

"The Turkish leadership has completely lost its touch with the real world," Lavrov added.

Relations between Ankara and Moscow deteriorated in November last year when Ankara shot down a Russian Su-24 aircraft carrying out anti-terrorist operations in Syria.
