MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Earlier in the day Russian President Vladimir Putin held a phone conversation with his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan. The leaders agreed to restore bilateral relations, inluding in the spheres of trade and tourism.
"A permit to create organized tourist trips can be received within 10-14 days. Turkey can get Russian tourists already this season," Morozov told RIA Novosti.
"Everything depends on experts now, on expert preparations to restore projects. But overall, trade and economic relations, economic projects with Turkey — including the Turkish Stream — can be restored within a month," the senator stated.
On Monday, the Kremlin announced that Erdogan had sent a letter regarding the incident with the Russian plane, saying "Excuse us" and pledging to take any steps to "relieve the pain and severity of damage" caused to the family of the pilot killed during the incident.
