MOSCOW, December 20. /TASS/. Moscow has no intention of closing its consulates in Turkey, Yevgeny Ivanov, Director of the Russian Foreign Ministry’s Consular Department, informed TASS on Tuesday.
"No, there are no plans to close them," the diplomat said when asked about security measures in the wake of the murder of Russian Ambassador to Turkey Andrei Karlov.
He noted though that security had been beefed up in Russia’s consular offices in Turkey. "The Turkish side must guarantee safe work of our diplomatic missions in accordance with its international obligations," he said.
