Vladimir Putin and Recep Tayyip Erdogan
Russia will take effective response actions in case of possible terrorist attacks. This was stated by President Vladimir Putin after a meeting with Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan in Ankara, RIA Novosti reported.
Earlier on December 11, Putin visited a military base in Syria Mamimi, ordered to begin the withdrawal of Russian troops to their permanent deployment. He noted that Russia’s Armed forces and the Syrian army for two years, “defeated the most efficient group of international terrorists”. Putin then said that if the militants “will again raise the head, then we will inflict on them such attacks, which they still have not seen”.
Putin said the talks with Erdogan. “We discussed key issues of bilateral cooperation, including the implementation of strategic trade-economic and military-technical projects. As well as exchanged views on topical international and regional agenda, the focus was on sharp deterioration of the situation in the middle East settlement and the Syrian Affairs.”
Erdogan, in turn, said that he intended to meet in Sochi with his Russian counterpart to discuss the Syrian settlement.
