Turkish FM talks normalization of relations with Russia
Baku, Azerbaijan, Aug. 5
By Rufiz Hafizoglu – Trend:
Turkey and Russia will restore all mechanisms for settlement of the Syrian crisis, said Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu in an interview with TGRT TV channel.
Cavusoglu said the normalization of Turkey-Russia relations will have a positive impact on the settlement of a number of problems in the region.
He also noted that there can be disagreements between the two countries on the Syrian crisis settlement, but it doesn’t prevent them from discussions.
Syria has been suffering from an armed conflict since March 2011, which, according to the UN, has so far claimed the lives of over 500,000 people.
Militants from various armed groups are confronting the Syrian government troops. The "Islamic State" and Jabhat al-Nusra are the most active terrorist groups in Syria.
