    Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan will visit Russia on March 9-10.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — According to the NTV television channel, during the visit Erdogan will hold talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin and attend a meeting of the High-Level Russian-Turkish Cooperation Council.

    It is also expected that the sides will discuss bilateral relations, increase in economic and trade cooperation and deliveries of Russia’s S-400 air defense missile systems to Turkey.

    The Kremlin spokesman confirmed the visit. "Yes, such talks are being planned," Peskov said.
