In recent remarks, the Presidency’s Press Secretary Dmitry Peskov noted that the terrorist actions in the city of Idlib pose a great danger to Syria, so that the issue is part of the agenda of the Russian-Turkish summit.
He warned that the challenges in that territory interfere with the resettlement process in Syria and recalled that in the most difficult and dangerous moments, both presidents showed political will and found the negotiation potential to reach agreements.
For Peskov, Putin and Erdogan ‘maintain very good relations of trust and work and with a predisposition to engage in serious negotiations.’
The Kremlin spokesman explained that Wednesday’s dialogue in Sochi, on the shores of the Black Sea, will also include bilateral relations and the review of joint projects in economy and trade, of interest to both nations.
The last working meeting between Putin and Erdogan took place in March 2020 in Moscow. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the bilateral exchanges were held over the phone or through video conferencing.
