The Russian President and the President of Turkey Recep Tayyip Erdogan will discuss the settlement of the Syrian conflict, said Putin during a joint press conference with his Turkish colleague.
“I want to say, we did not discuss this issue during the negotiations. Everyone knows that we sometimes had different point of view on the settlement, but we agreed to discuss it later and to find the solution,” Putin said.
The Russian President stressed that the conflict in Syria can be resolved only by democratic means.
“We believe that democratic change in Syria can only be achieved with democracy,” said he.
Tuesday, August 9, the meeting of the Presidents of Turkey and Russia held in St. Petersburg. It was the first meeting of Erdogan with Putin since the crisis in bilateral relations.
