Russian, Turkish PMs meet in Moscow


Baku. Malahat Najafova – APA. As part of his first visit to Moscow as the premier, Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim met with his Russian counterpart Dmitry Medvedev on Tuesday, Turkish NTV channel reported.

 

Yıldırım said Ankara’s relations with Moscow had faced a “test” but added: “Thanks to mutual political will, we have endured the difficult situation.”       

 

He recalled the “normalization process” which started from Aug. 9 following a meeting between Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin in St. Petersburg.      

 

“Due to the nature of the region, we [as Russia, as Turkey] have a crucial duty. At the same time we have responsibility [in the region],” Yıldırım added.    

 

Turkey and Russia must unite efforts in international counterterrorism, the PM said, calling for the implementation of the unfinished projects between the two countries.

 

In turn, Russian PM Dmitry Medvedev said that there is a great potential for the implementation of major projects and expansion of economic and trade ties between the two countries.

 

“Turkey and Russia have historically enjoyed major trade ties. In recent years, this relationship has weakened,” Medvedev said, adding. “The main purpose of today’s meeting is to give impetus to the mutual cooperation in all areas, in particularly, in the economic sphere.”
