Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan have discussed the prospects of restoring full-fledged bilateral cooperation, including in energy, at the meeting in China’s Hangzhou, according to TASS News Agency.
"I’m glad to have a chance to meet and discuss the implementation of our agreements reached during your visit to Russia’s St. Petersburg," Putin told the Turkish president opening the meeting. "Of course, a lot more needs to be done to restore the full-fledged cooperation in all areas. We will talk about this once again today," Putin said.
Erdogan also said he plans to consider all the issues of bilateral cooperation raised at the St. Petersburg meeting of the two leaders in August. "There will be the possibility to consider the energy issues as there is some development here," he said, adding that some steps need be taken for progress in this area.
