The talks will focus on the camps in Turkey where militants undergo training, he said.
“Special attention will be paid to discussing key international issues, including the situation in the Middle East, including in Syria and Iraq,” Ushakov said.
“It is rather logical that the Syrian situation will be one of the most important issues during the talk in the narrow format when international issues are expected to be considered,” he said.
“I believe that we’ll exchange views in all details, including due to the recent trip to Sochi by the Syrian foreign minister. Now I’d not like to go into concrete details. But Syria will be discussed in every detail. This is one of the priority problems for Moscow and Ankara,” Ushakov said.Putin said in an interview with Turkey’s Anadolu agency ahead of his visit to Turkey that the situation in Syria remains source of serious concern and the activities of the Islamic State and other radical groups are the main risk of further aggravation of the situation in the country and neighboring states.
“What is more, the main risk of further aggravation of the situation both in this country and in neighbouring states stems from the activities of the so-called Islamic State and other radical groups that were once actively employed by some Western countries, which flirted with them and encouraged them,” he said.
“We are convinced that the efforts to deter this threat should be based on the UN Security Council resolutions, strict compliance with international law, the principles of state sovereignty and non-interference in internal affairs of states in the first place. And what is important - this should be done transparently and without any hidden agenda,” he said.
