“We noted with astonishment and indignation a story at the Turkish English-language portal AWDnews on the remarks that President Putin allegedly made on October 24, 2014, on the sidelines of a conference of the Valdai international discussion club regarding the Turkish leadership’s tough policies in the Middle East and especially concerning the stance Ankara has taken on the Syrian crisis and on fighting with international terrorism,” a commentary at the official website of the ministry said.
“Along with it, references were made to some mythical materials published by the news agency TASS,” it said.
“This information is a sheer fabricated peace of propaganda and it does not have anything to do with reality,” the commentary indicated. “President Putin’s speech at the conference was broadcast live by Russian TV channels and its full transcript featuring tiny details of what he said has been published.”
“Quite obviously, this type of unscrupulousness purses the goal of tarnishing the mutually beneficial and trustworthy partnership existing between Russia and Turkey and to halt its consistent development at the current stage,” the statement said.
“The masterminds and perpetrators of this provocation should know that they failed to reach their goal and no one believed them,” the ministry said.
