SOCHI (Sputnik) –
Likhachev said Wednesday that Russian Economic Development Minister Alexei Ulyukayev was scheduled to meet Turkish Economy Minister Nihat Zeybekci in Istanbul on October 8-9.
"We are ready to move on mutually advantageous terms in this area. We too have a lot of questions toward Turkey, there are a lot of questions," he told reporters.
The official pointed out that the issues mainly concern Turkey's bans on Russian milk and meat imports.
"This topic will be discussed at the upcoming ministerial meeting. Why meet if there is no hope?" Likhachev said.
