Ankara Hopes Turkish Products to Return to Russia Shortly After Embargo Lift
MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said Tuesday that he expects more developed relations between Ankara and Moscow as the two countries are neighbors.

"We will see more developed relations and that is what needs to take place, because Turkey is a neighbour to Russia. We have… common interests, a common future," Yildirim told Sky News in an interview.

Russian President Vladimir Putin and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan are expected to meet on August 9 in St. Petersburg for the first time since the bilateral relations deteriorated in late 2015 after Turkey downed a Russian Su-24 jet in November 2015.

Rapprochement between the two countries began in late June when, as Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan wrote a letter to Russian President Vladimir Putin in which he apologized for the Su-24 incident and extended his condolences to the family of the pilot killed in the incident.
