MOSCOW, December 20. /TASS/. Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu, who is visiting Russia to attend a Russian-Iranian-Turkish ministerial conference, is expected to come to Vnukovo airport on Tuesday night and meet the flight from Ankara airlifting the body of the slain Russian Ambassador, Andrei Karlov, the press secretary of the Turkish embassy in Moscow, Orhan Gazigil told TASS.
"Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Turkish Republic will be present at the airport to meet the flight from Ankara, which will bring to Moscow the body of Russian Ambassador Andrei Karlov, who was killed yesterday," he said.
In the course of negotiations on Tuesday, Cavusoglu expressed condolences over the ambassador’ death more than once.
An armed man whom the police identified later as a 22-year-old former police officer opened indiscriminate fire on Monday in an arts gallery in Ankara where Ambassador Karlov was opening a photo exhibition. According to Maria Zakharova, the Russian Foreign Ministry's official spokesperson, Karlov received a gunshot wound, of which he died at hospital later.
Turkish officials said the attacker was eliminated on the spot. Apart from the ambassador, he wounded three more people.
