    A spokesman for Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that the first Russian-Turkish committee on Syria will hold the first meeting on Thursday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The first Russian-Turkish committee on Syria will hold the first meeting on Thursday, a spokesman for Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Wednesday.

    "The first meeting will be held tomorrow, the delegation will go to Moscow this evening," Ibrahim Kalin told the Turkish A Haber broadcaster.

    Erdogan visited St. Petersburg on Tuesday to have talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin, after seven months of strained relations following the November downing of a Russian military aircraft by Turkey.

    The two leaders agreed to develop bilateral ties, returning to the pre-crisis level of cooperation in trade, energy and defense and other spheres.

    Earlier in the day, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said that Ankara and Moscow were working on a "reliable mechanism" to deal with Syria crisis settlement.
