MOSCOW, October 10. /TASS/. Economic agreements reached by the Russian and Turkish presidents on Monday will help build up trust on the Syrian and other complicated problems where the sides have different positions, a senior Russian lawmaker told TASS.
"Agreements in the energy and trade & economic spheres are very important not only from the commercial point of view," Konstantin Kosachev, the chairman of the International Affairs Committee of Russia’s Federation Council upper parliament house, said. "They create a basis for trust and mutual understanding in future cooperation on the Syrian and other complicated dossiers where positions of our countries are different, but nevertheless can and should be brought closer."
In his words, the results of today’s talks between Vladimir Putin and Recep Tayyip Erdogan are "only the start of the road."
Earlier in the day, an intergovernmental agreement on the Turkish Stream gas pipeline was signed after talks between the two presidents. Apart from that, the sides agreed on a gas discount under this project and discussed further works on the construction of Turkey’s Akkuyu nuclear power plant. Along with economic issues, the two presidents focused on the Syrian crisis and spoke in favor of the soonest end to bloodshed in that country.
