Baku, September 28, AZERTAC
Russian President Vladimir Putin may pay an official visit to Turkey in October, a senior Turkish business leader said Wednesday in Moscow, according to Anadolu Agency.
“We expect that the restrictions on Turkish businessmen as well as the Turkish Stream [pipeline project] will be discussed during the visit," Rifat Hisarciklioglu, head of the Turkish Union of Chambers and Commodity Exchanges, told journalists, referring to hurdles remaining from a bilateral crisis last fall, recently resolved through top-level exchanges.
Hisarciklioglu and a delegation of Turkish businesspeople met with Alexey Likhachev, Russia’s first deputy minister of economic development, to boost trade opportunities between the countries.
Kremlin spokesperson Dmitriy Peskov also said the Russian president may visit Turkey. “When all the preparations are completed, we will make the necessary announcements,” he said.
