MOSCOW, June 29. /TASS/. Interaction in the fight against terrorism will help Russia and Turkey mend bilateral relations, a senior Russian senator said on Wednesday, commenting on the results of a telephone talk between President Vladimir Putin and his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
Franz Klintsevich, first deputy chairman of the Federation Council Defense and Security Committee, said that although "Turkey should itself tackle its internal problems, it can, nonetheless, unconditionally count on Russia’s support in the fight against terrorism."
"I believe that precisely interaction in this sphere will help clear the road of cooperation in other spheres from debris," the senator said.
"In the conflict with Turkey, Russia behaved as a great power in the true sense of this word - it didn’t get hysterical, didn’t engage in saber-rattling and didn’t force the events," Klintsevich said.
In the senator’s opinion, it was absolutely right for Russia "to decide against driving Turkey into the corner to leave it room for a maneuver."
"As a result, the sides didn’t cross the no-return point in their relations, although, truth be told, they were close to this in some periods," the Russian senator said.
