MOSCOW, February 21. /TASS/. As a NATO member state, Turkey might encourage the alliance towards a real anti-terrorist coalition, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said on Tuesday.
"As a NATO member state, Turkey could probably act as an initiator of involving NATO into a real anti-terrorist coalition," he told the 2nd All-Russia Youth Forum dedicated to international military political and military economic cooperation at Moscow’s State Institute of International Relations, or MGIMO University.
Speaking about the Russian-Turkish relations, the minister noted that big work is being done in the sphere of military technical cooperation that enjoys support from the both countries’ leaders.
"I think it is right as no one can choose its neighbors. We must simply live side by side with the neighbors and it is better to live in peace and accord. So, I see rather good prospects as concerns maintaining of peace in this region," he added.
