The Russian president intends to visit Türkiye without specifying a specific date


The Russian President Vladimir Putin accepted an invitation from his Turkish counterpart, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, to visit Türkiye.

Putin’s advisor, Yuri Ushakov, said on Thursday, in statements that the Turkish president confirmed his invitation to our president to visit Türkiye.

He added that arrangements are underway for the visit, without specifying a fixed date.

Relations between the two countries improved during the recent years, as both leaders’ shares close ties and friendship.

Türkiye hesitated to participate in the sanctions imposed on Russia, following its invasion of Ukraine, in February of last year.

Türkiye, which is an old NATO member, has taken the role of mediator in the conflict.

On the other hand, the International Criminal Court issued an arrest warrant for Putin for ordering the unjustified war against Ukraine, while Ankara isn’t a signatory to the treaty establishing the International Criminal Court and, for its part, will almost certainly not carry out the arrest warrant against the Russian president.
