SOCHI, May 2. /TASS/. The Russian and Turkish presidents, Vladimir Putin and Recep Tayyp Erdogan, will meet on Wednesday to discuss recent developments in Syria and prospects for cooperation in the military-technical field, Russian Presidential Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Tuesday.
"Turkey‘s side has already made public its intention to focus on various Syria-related problems, as well as bilateral cooperation, including in the military-technical sphere," Peskov said.
When a reporter asked him if the forthcoming talks might be linked to possible supplies of Russian S-400 Triumf antiaircraft complexes, Peskov recalled Erdogan's words he hoped to discuss all the details related to S-400.
"Defense-related technlogies will be on the agenda of the meeting indeed, and that's all I can tell you," Peskov said. "The issues of defense-related technologies are always very sensitive I wouldn't like to add any more details here," he said.
He also said the Putin-Erdogan summit would have a standard pattern, with narrow-format talks to be followed by talks with the delegations present in full force.
"As usual, there'll be a news conference," Peskov said.
