MOSCOW, November 30, 19:41 /ITAR-TASS/. Opening of the Russian Cultural Center in Ankara has been scheduled for the end of January, 2014, Konstantin Kosachev, the director of Russia’s Federal Agency for Cooperation with Fellow-Countrymen Abroad /Rossotrudnichestvo/ told reporters Saturday.
“Earlier this week, representatives of Rossotrudnichestvo went to Ankara to round up the talks,” Kosachev said. “A building has been chosen already. It’s a new one, just being commissioned for operations and some time will be needed to equip it properly.”
“At this moment, we can name the end of January as the date of opening of the center,” he said.
He indicated that the opening of a Turkish cultural center in Russia is also being planned.
“The issue was discussed at the latest session of the Top-Level Cooperation Council where President Vladimir Putin and Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan took part,” Kosachev said. “As far as I can see, the Turkish side also plans to do it sometime in 2014.
