A Turkish presidential source later confirmed the call had taken place but said only that the two men "exchanged views on the latest developments in Syria" and agreed to maintain contact.

Meanwhile, Turkish Foreign Ministry Spokesman Hami Aksoy said that there are strong suspicions that the chemical attack in the Syrian town of Douma, in the Damascus suburb of eastern Ghouta was carried out by the Assad regime.

While Russia, alongside Iran, has been supporting the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, Turkey has repeatedly called for his ouster and supported Syrian rebels.

And in recent months, Turkey has worked closely with Russian Federation despite their differences.

Britain's United Nations ambassador denies Russian accusation over alleged chemical attack in Syria
Putin and Macron instructed their foreign and defense ministers to maintain close contact to "de-escalate the situation", the Kremlin said.

Both the presidents spoke "to discuss the current crisis in Syria", it said.

Turkey is allegedly a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation ally, allowing USA planes to fly against ISIS from Incirlik.

According to Aksoy, the attack that killed dozens and affected 500 others constitutes a crime against humanity and the perpetrators need to be punished to prevent similar attacks in the future.

Cavusoglu added by saying that the establishment of a permanent solution such as the Astana and Sochi processes must be put to work effectively and the country must go in elections in a very short time under the U.N.'s roof.

Erdogan's warning about potential conformation in Syria echoed similar concerns by Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim who on Wednesday called on Russian Federation and the United States to stop "street fighting" on Syria.

"If an attack occurs against the forces [in Syria] backed by Russian Federation or there is an attack by the USA -supported forces, Russian Federation won't be able to stay away, otherwise it will lose its influence".

Turkish authorities often use the word "neutralized" in their statements to imply that the terrorists in question either surrendered or were killed or captured.
