ANKARA, July 25. /TASS/. Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu expressed gratitude on Monday to the President of Russia for the "unconditional support" to the government of the republic against which a coup d’etat attempt was staged. He made this statement on the Haberturk TV channel.
"Russia has expressed unconditional support to us. First of all, I’d like to thank Mr. Putin and other Russian officials," he said.
In addition, Cavusoglu said that a meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan may be held in August before the Group of Twenty (G20) summit. "This meeting will focus on removing the economic barriers and on other steps to restore bilateral relations," the Turkish foreign minister said.
