    The next meeting of the High-Level Russian-Turkish Cooperation Council may by scheduled at 2017, Kremlin aide Yuri Ushakov said Friday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan may agree to schedule the next meeting of the High-Level Russian-Turkish Cooperation Council for 2017 at their upcoming meeting, Kremlin aide Yuri Ushakov said Friday.

    "If all goes well, I hope that the parties will agree to hold a regular meeting of the High-Level Cooperation Council in 2017," Ushakov said.

    He added that the Council is headed by the two countries' presidents and that it includes "literally all" the key ministers who are responsible for the development of bilateral ties.

    According to Ushakov, the place and exact date for the Council meeting will be agreed through the respective diplomatic offices after the two presidents talk, yet it is "obvious" that it will be held in Moscow, since the last Council meeting was held in Turkey in December 2014.
