The U.S. suspended Monday its cooperation with Russia over maintaining a cease-fire agreement to end violence in Syria. 

Speaking to journalists in the Turkish parliament, Isik said: "We wish Russia and the U.S. would not oppose [each other]."

Asked about Tukrey's stance should a scenario in which both countries confront each other "seriously", he replied: "Turkey always protects its own benefits."

On Monday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said the cease-fire in Syria had been  suspended due to Washington's "uncertain approach" toward the crisis.
