MOSCOW, July 13. /TASS/. Deputy Foreign Ministers of Russia and Turkey Alexey Meshkov and Ali Kemal Aysin will lead their respective delegations at the session on tourism security in Moscow on July 14, spokesman for the Turkish Embassy in Moscow Orhan Gazigil told TASS on Wednesday.
"At the meeting, the issues of cooperation between the two countries in the sphere of tourism will be discussed, including resumption of charter flights and tourism security," Gazigil said.
The Turkish Foreign Ministry said earlier that the meeting would focus on "resuming charter flights, measures on ensuring tourist security, as well as further prospects of cooperation in the sphere of tourism." "Representatives of the Foreign Ministry, Ministry of Culture and Tourism, Ministry of Transport and Interior Ministry will go to the meeting with Russian officials in Moscow on June 14," the foreign ministry added.
On June 27, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters President Tayyip Erdogan had sent Russian President Vladimir Putin a message in which apologizing for the downed Su-24 plane.
On June 29, the presidents had a telephone conversation - the first one in the past seven months, where they agreed to consider a meeting. After the conversation, Putin ordered the government to begin discussions with Ankara for resuming cooperation in trade and other spheres.
The Turkish Air Force’s F-16 fighter on November 24, 2015 shot down a Russian Sukhoi Su-24M bomber, involved in Russia's antiterrorism operation in Syria, that Ankara claimed violated the country’s airspace on the border with Syria.
Russia’s Defense Ministry said the Su-24M was above Syrian territory and "there was no violation of Turkey’s airspace." Pilot Oleg Peshkov was killed by militants from the ground after ejecting, the second pilot was rescued and taken to the Russian base. The incident resulted in the severing of nearly all trade and economic ties between the two countries. Ankara refused to apologize for the downed jet and death of the pilot. Moscow put the blame for the incident on the Turkish authorities.
