    Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and his Turkish counterpart Mevlut Cavusoglu may meet during their visits to China, Turkey's ambassador to Russia, Umit Yardim, said Wednesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Lavrov is on an official visit to China between April 28-29, while Yardim is also currently on a trip to the Asian country.

    "Today, both Lavrov and Cavusoglu are in China, I cannot say for sure, but perhaps some sort of a meeting between them will take place there," Yardim told reporters.

    Russian-Turkish relations deteriorated following the downing of the Russian Su-24 aircraft by a Turkish F-16 fighter in Syria on November 24, 2015. Moscow imposed a number of restrictive measures on Turkey in response to what Russian President Vladimir Putin classified a "stab in the back."
