Turkey-Russia Committee on Syria to hold 1st Meeting – Erdogan’s Spokesman
A spokesman for Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Wednesday that the first Russian-Turkish committee on Syria will hold the first meeting on Thursday.
“The first meeting will be held tomorrow, the delegation will go to Moscow this evening,” Ibrahim Kalin told the Turkish A Haber broadcaster.
Erdogan visited St. Petersburg on Tuesday to have talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin, after seven months of strained relations following the November downing of a Russian military aircraft by Turkey.
The two leaders agreed to develop bilateral ties, returning to the pre-crisis level of cooperation in trade, energy and defense and other spheres.
Earlier in the day, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said that Ankara and Moscow were working on a “reliable mechanism” to deal with Syria crisis settlement. (PNA/Sputnik)
