MOSCOW, July 26. /TASS/. Russian experts have been invited to Turkey to verify the safety measures for tourists, Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich told reporters after talks with his Turkish counterpart Mehmet Simsek.
Depending on the results of the inspection the government will make the decision on resumption of charter flights, he said.
Dvorkovich said that the experts will assess the security situation in Turkey by the meeting of presidents of Russia and Turkey scheduled for August 9.
"We have discussed the issues related to the resumption of charter flights. In this area consultations on the level of departments have already been held. Our Turkish colleagues received recommendations of the Russian side and they accepted them. They sent an invitation to our experts to come to Turkey to inspect the security measures which are taken at airports, hotels and other places for the mass stay of tourists, to make sure that such measures are sufficient," Dvorkovich said.
According to him, "the actual resumption of charter flights will take some time, because the companies will need to carry out the necessary preparatory work. 0art
