ASTANA, October 13. /TASS/. Kremlin aide Yury Ushakov on Thursday said Russian and Turkish presidents Vladimir Putin and Recep Tayyip Erdogan simply didn’t have time to discuss Ukraine as they focused on other issues during their talks earlier that day.
The sides "spent very much time discussing trade and political issues including gas deals and reinvigorating trade and economic relations in all the other areas," he said. "That consumed all the time."
When asked if any political conclusions should be made from the fact that the presidents didn’t bring up Ukraine at the talks, Ushakov said, "No, probably not".
