President Recep Tayyip Erdogan will pay a visit to Russia’s coastal city of Sochi next Monday, Nov. 13, the Turkish presidency said on Friday.
Erdogan and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin are expected to exchange views on bilateral relations and regional and international developments, particularly Syria, the presidency said in a statement.
The last meeting between Erdogan and Putin was on Sept. 28 in Turkey's capital Ankara.
During Putin's one-day visit, the leaders stressed the territorial integrity of both Iraq and Syria.
Turkey and Russia, together with Iran, are the guarantor countries who brokered a December cease-fire in Syria, which led to the Astana, Kazakhstan talks, which are being held in parallel to UN-backed discussions in Geneva to find a political solution to the six-year conflict.
