MOSCOW (Reuters) - Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Monday that the results of Sunday’s Turkish referendum, in which a majority voted to grant President Tayyip Erdogan more powers, should be respected.

The vote was a domestic Turkish matter, he said.

Asked to comment on U.S. statements on North Korea, Peskov said that Moscow wanted all sides to avoid any actions that might be considered provocative and to show restraint.
