The leaders of Russia and Turkey, Vladimir Putin and Recep Tayyip Erdogan, have done a lot of work to restore mutual trust and are successfully collaborating. This was stated by Putin’s press secretary, Dmitry Peskov, in an interview for the program “News on Saturday.”
“President Putin sufficiently trusts President Erdogan,” Peskov remarked. He added that the leaders of the two countries “are discussing the most sensitive topics related to the situation in the region and bilateral relations.”
Peskov went on: “I think that, of course, this mutual trust could be destroyed very easily and very quickly. Restoring trust takes time but without a doubt the two countries’ presidents have come a long way in this regard.”
From August to October this year, Putin and Erdogan met three times at various events. In addition, the two leaders have held a large number of telephone negotiations.
