MOSCOW, September 19. /TASS/. Russia and Turkey should carry on a close dialog on problems facing the Middle East, Turkish Ambassador to Russia Umit Yardym told a roundtable on the situation in that region at the Valdai Discussion Club on Monday.
"I am sure that Russia and Turkey must conduct a closer dialogue on the settlement of the Middle East problems," he said, noting that neither Russia nor Turkey are parties at fault in the harm the Middle East saw in the past.
"When we hear the words ‘Middle East’ - terrorism and bombings immediately come to mind, but when we speak about the future of the region, we must first of all ask local residents what they think about the future of their countries," Yardym said.
"The future of the country belongs to its nationals," he noted.
