HANGZHOU (China), September 4. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan exchanged views on the sidelines of the G20 summit on Sunday on the Syrian conflict and issues of developing bilateral relations, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.
The two leaders first held a meeting attended by the delegations, and later had one-on-one talks and then with foreign ministers. "They later exchanged views on the Syrian affairs. The exchange of views was very trust-based and detailed," Peskov said.
At the meeting with delegations, the presidents discussed a schedule of resuming all formats of bilateral cooperation. There are plans to hold a meeting of the High-Level Council by the year-end, and a joint group of strategic planning will meet this autumn, and a forum of public organizations will be convened, he said. Another important document - a program of scientific and technical and cultural cooperation up to 2019 - is almost ready and may be signed soon.
The presidents also discussed energy projects, including extending Russia’s oil supplies by Rosneft.
"In addition, they spoke about Rosatom - it is known that the Turks have introduced the necessary amendments rather quickly that will allow to intensify the work on the Akkuyu NPP. They also discussed the Turkish Stream - the case is as many permissions and agreements were given for the South Stream route. Now in fact only the name changes, and so there is the need to issue new permissions, this will speed up the process. There is a change in the name, not in the direction," he said.
The Turkish colleagues also asked about lifting Russia’s restrictions on agricultural products. "This work will continue," Peskov said, adding: "In general, the talks were rather positive and they confirmed the joint determination to further normalize relations.".
