PARIS, July 23. /TASS/. Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan hopes to have a meeting with Russia’s President Vladimir Putin in mid-August, he said this in an interview with France-24 on Saturday.
"Right now, the Turkish Foreign Ministry negotiates it with the Russian counterparts," he said. "Of course, the recent events in Turkey, apparently, will change the visit timing. But I think, if nothing extraordinary happens, a meeting with the Russian president may take place about mid-August."
On July 20, Russian presidential press secretary Dmitry Peskov told journalists a meeting between the Presidents of Russia and Turkey, Vladimir Putin and Recep Tayyip Erdogan, will be held in Russia in early August. "They (Putin and Erdogan) agreed to hold the meeting in early August, it will take place in the Russian Federation, but the city and the exact date are so far being considered," the Kremlin representative said.
Peskov denied the rumors that the Putin-Erdogan meeting may be held in Baku. "No, it’s not true: a trilateral meeting of the presidents of Russia, Azerbaijan and Iran will be held in Baku," he said. According to the Russian presidential press secretary, "indeed, a meeting between Putin and Erdogan is currently being prepared and worked out through diplomatic channels".
