The resumption of the Russia-Turkey tourist flow will contribute to a speedy restoration of friendly relations between two countries, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan told a joint press conference with his counterpart Vladimir Putin held in St. Petersburg.

In terms of tourist flow Turkey earned serious income from Russian tourists trips. This brought our peoples together. Therefore, we shouldn’t put aside this issue, said Erdogan.

President of the Republic of Turkey went on saying that in the near future two countries will resume regular charter air travels.

According to Erdogan, it will prove a quick restoration of the Russia-Turkey friendly relations.

The charter flights between two countries will be resumed soon, and this is another proof that the rapprochement between our countries will be quick, said Erdogan.
