Turkish PM: the relations with Russia are expanding into new areas

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said that relations between Turkey and Russia are swiftly improving, based as they are on deep roots that extend back decades.

“Turkish-Russian relations dating back to long ago are taking confident steps toward the future, diversifying into the fields of economy, politics, military and culture,” he told the Turkish-Russian Business Forum jointly organized by the Turkish Confederation of Businessmen and Industrialists (TUSKON), the Turkish Exporters’ Assembly (TİM) and the Turkish Union of Chambers and Commodity Exchanges (TOBB) in Moscow on Tuesday.

Erdogan travelled to the Russian capital earlier on Tuesday and was received by Russian President Dmitri Medvedev before attending the forum, where he addressed almost a thousand Turkish and Russian businesspeople who had gathered to discuss trade and investment opportunities.
