Putin to meet Er­do­gan in Turkey

The Myanmar Times - - World -

Pres­i­dent Vladimir Putin will meet his Turk­ish coun­ter­part Re­cep Tayyip Er­do­gan in Is­tan­bul on Oc­to­ber 10 as the coun­tries mend ties shat­tered by Ankara’s shoot­ing down of a Rus­sian war­plane last year. The visit to Turkey will be Mr Putin’s first since Ankara downed a Rus­sian war­plane on the Syr­ian bor­der in Novem­ber 2015 in what the Krem­lin branded a “planned provo­ca­tion”. The in­ci­dent prompted Mr Putin to slap sanc­tions on Turkey but in a shock re­ver­sal in June, ac­cepted a let­ter from Mr Er­do­gan ex­press­ing re­gret over the in­ci­dent.
