MOSCOW, November 27. /TASS/. Russia has decided to suspend the visa-free regime with Turkey from the beginning of 2016, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Friday after meeting with his Syrian counterpart Walid Muallem in Moscow.
"Russia’s leadership has taken a decision to suspend the visa-free regime between Russia and Turkey. This decision will come into force from January 1," Lavrov said.
Lavrov reiterated that Russia has been concerned about the growing terrorist threats coming from Turkey. "This is directly linked with the security of Russia and our citizens."
"There is a well-run traffic of gunmen via Turkey in various directions," he said, adding that Turkey has been reluctant to tell Russia about the cooperation in this issue.
"These are not farfetched threats, these are quite real threats," Lavrov stressed.
