Putin, Erdogan to Discuss Bilateral Relations and Regional Issues
Russian President Vladimir Putin and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan are set to meet today in Sochi to discuss the Russian-Turkish partnership.
In the first face-to-face talks between the two since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan will hold a meeting in Sochi on Wednesday to discuss bilateral relations and regional issues.
The Kremlin's press service said that Putin and Erdogan are set to discuss trade, economic cooperation, and developments in Syria, Libya, Afghanistan, as well as in the Caucasus.
Erdogan had previously stated that he would discuss important decisions during negotiations with his Russian counterpart in Sochi.
Two days ago, Russian Presidential Spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that Russian Presidents Vladimir Putin and Turkish Recep Tayyip Erdogan will discuss the situation in Syria, including Idlib, where terrorist activity is still interfering in the settlement process.
The spokesman also said earlier that the presidents will focus on Russian-Turkish relations where "there are a lot of common things to do in bilateral relations as well as work on joint projects in economic and trade ties."
