The Russian President Vladimir Putin arrived in Istanbul on a working visit for the first time after the crash of the Su-24, the Turkish state news agency Anadolu informs.
Reportedly, the Russian head of state will participate in the 23th World Energy Congress, as well as hold a series of bilateral meetings, in particular with the President of Turkey Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
The Congress is to be held until October 13, under the patronage of Erdogan and with the organizational support of the Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources of Turkey.
Relations between the two countries extremely strained following the attack on the plane. Improving began in the summer, when Erdogan sent a letter to Putin and expressed his regret in connection with the crash of the Su-24.
In early August, Erdogan arrived at the meeting with Putin in St. Petersburg, during which the Turkish President expressed hope to restore "the axis of friendship" between the two countries and called his Russian counterpart "dear friend."
