During the conversation, Erdogan briefed Putin on the details of the shooting of Russian ambassador Andrey Karlov. The gunman shouted "we die in Aleppo, you die here" and "don't forget about Aleppo, don't forget about Syria, Allahu Akbar…" before Turkish security officials "neutralized" the threat.
