ANKARA, April 21. /TASS/. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan plans to visit Russia on May 3 and hold a meeting with Russian leader Vladimir Putin, the Turkish president’s office told TASS on Friday.
"This trip has been scheduled. Our president plans to visit Russia on May 3 and hold talks with Mr. Putin presumably in the city of Sochi," a source in the presidential office said.
