MOSCOW, December 5. /TASS/. Tomorrow’s talks between Russian and Turkish Prime Ministers, Dmitry Medvedev and Binali Yildirim, are expected to yield no concreted decisions or documents, Russian Deputy Prime minister and chief of the government’s administration Sergei Prokhodko told journalists on Monday.

The Turkish head of state will be on a working visit to Russia.

When asked whether any concrete decisions could be expected from the Medvedev-Yildirim talks, Prikhodko answered, "Not tomorrow."

He said that this is a routine negotiating process and all decisions on unfreezing certain aspects of the Russian-Turkish relations were taken after certain stages of the consultations and were not time to any political events.

"We think we should draw up a kind of inventory to see what we have done and what we have failed to do, to give an impetus [to the development of relations]," Prikhodko said. "We don’t plan to sign any documents or to announce any political or economic decisions during this visit."

According to Prikhodko, the two prime ministers will discuss trade and economic ties, cooperation in the gas and nuclear energy sectors, investment and industrial cooperation, agriculture, high technologies and humanitarian ties. "The Russian side is set to expand practical cooperation with Turkey in a wide range of areas of mutual interest," he added.

Russia’s delegation to the talks will also include Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich, Minister of Industry and Trade Denis Manturov, Minister of Energy Alexander Novak, chief of the Federal Service for Military Technical Cooperation Alexander Fomin, Minister of Transport Maxim Sokolov, Minister of Agriculture Alexander Tkachev, Gazprom CEO Alexei Miller, Rosatom CEO Dmitry Likhachev and Deputy Foreign Minister Vasily Nebenzya.
