    Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan will discuss on March 10 the prospects for the Russia-Turkey cooperation in the fight against international terrorism and the settlement of the Syrian crisis, the Kremlin's press service said in a statement Tuesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Erdogan will visit Russia on March 10 at Putin's invitation to attend the sixth meeting of the High-Level Cooperation Council.

    "There are also plans to exchange views on urgent aspects of regional problems, first of all, regarding the prospects for further cooperation between Russia and Turkey in the fight against international terrorism and the settlement of the Syrian crisis," the statement said.

    The leaders also plan to discuss the construction of the Turkish nuclear power plant Akkuyu and the Turkish Stream gas pipeline.

    Russia and Turkey are guarantors of a nationwide Syrian ceasefire that came into force on December 30, 2016, and has been holding up in general, despite continued reports of violations.
