ANKARA, Jan 28 (Asia Free Press): Russian President Vladimir Putin has accepted the invitation of his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan to visit Turkey very soon, reported AA.
The meeting will be held when the pandemic situation and the schedules of the two leaders allow for it, Peskov told reporters at a daily briefing in Moscow.
“President Putin gratefully accepted this invitation. And they agreed that as soon as the epidemiological situation normal and the schedules allow, he will take advantage of this invitation,” Peskov said.
Peskov noted that due to the pandemic, there has been “a certain pause” in holding meetings of the intergovernmental commission and the High-Level Cooperation Council, headed by the two presidents.
The topic was discussed several times in recent presidential contacts, and Erdogan said he was ready to host all these events in Turkey, Peskov added.
Erdogan and Putin periodically speak by phone and have had several mutual visits in recent years, and both leaders have wished to enhance bilateral cooperation for regional benefits.
Earlier, Turkish President Erdogan had offered Russia and Ukraine top-level officials to play its role as a mediator to solve Russia-Ukraine ongoing escalations, where both the countries had accepted his offer, and so Turkey soon will play its vital role in the regard.
