“Two bilateral meetings are under consideration upon arrival to China. The first is with the president of the Argentine republic, Mauricio Macri. Note that this if the first meeting between the Argentinian and Russian leaders after Macri’s election. Afterward there will be a no less interesting, and perhaps more interesting, contact – a conversation with the President of the Republic of Turkey [Recep Tayyip] Erdogan,” Ushakov told reporters.
Ushakov noted that Moscow-Ankara relations are improving rapidly since last fall's jet downing with the latest resumption of charter flights.
Erdogan paid a reconciliatory visit to St. Petersburg on August 9 to restart bilateral ties after the downing of Russia’s Su-24 in November 2015 effectively froze bilateral ties.
