DVORIKI (Russia) (Sputnik) — Lavrov mentioned how important it was to cooperate:
"Restoring the trust to its former state is too abstract a category. Everything will hinge on our approach to cooperation and contacts… how we are going to trade with each other… build things together, implement joint investment projects and, largely, on how we will cooperate on the Syria peace process," Lavrov said at a youth forum held near Russia's city of Vladimir.
By doing so Ankara fulfilled one of the conditions put forward by Moscow following the incident that paralyzed the long-term partnership between the two countries. The letter also said legal proceedings were underway against the Turkish citizen allegedly involved in the Russian pilot’s death – another condition named by Russia in order to restore the severed ties.
