MOSCOW, October 15. /TASS/. Russia and Turkey will continue intensive dialogue within the framework of international forums, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Alexey Meshkov said on Thursday. He was speaking at an international conference "Russia-Turkey: Strengthening Multi-Faceted Cooperation."
"The Russian-Turkish relations are an integral part of world and European history," he said. "We will always remain neighbors. Neighbors may go through difficult times, but the most important thing is that today we have reached an unprecedentedly high level of Russian-Turkish cooperation."
Meshkov described the relations between Moscow and Ankara as "advanced multi-faceted partnership." "And in a number of areas, primarily in the energy sector, we are reaching a strategic level," the diplomat added. According to him, Russia and Turkey maintain intensive political dialogue. "Many countries may envy its dynamic nature, especially at the top level," he said. "The visit of Russian President Vladimir Putin to Turkey took place last December, and in September our president met with [Turkish] President Erdogan in Moscow."
Meshkov noted that during these meetings the two leaders had reaffirmed mutual interest in further development of the bilateral relations and the desire to continue dialogue to promote the development of positive trends in the Russian-Turkish relations.
"A number of meetings is planned before the end of the year, including during the forthcoming G20 summit in Antalya to be held in November and within the framework of the time-tested mechanism of the High-Level Russian-Turkish Cooperation Council," Meshkov said.
