NAANTALI, July 1. /TASS/. Russian President has arrived in the Finnish city of Turku. The Kremlin press service reported earlier on Friday that the head of state’s working visit is held at the invitation of the country’s Preident Sauli Niinisto.
During the forthcoming talks, which will be held in the city of Naantali, the sides are expected to discuss a broad range of issues of Russian-Finnish relations, including in the trade and economic and cultural-humanitarian spheres. They will also address the current issues of interregional and cross-border cooperation.
The two countries’ leaders also intend to discuss a number of international issues, including the situation in Ukraine, Syria and the future architecture of international relations after the recent referendum in the UK on exit from the EU.
The visit program includes Putin’s narrow-format talks with Niinisto, talks at a working lunch and a joint press conference of the two presidents. No signing of joint documents is planned.
