Turkish FM to discuss Syria in visit to Russia

Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu is visiting Russia to participate in a meeting of the Joint Strategic Planning Group, which is a sub-organ of the Turkish-Russian High-Level Cooperation Council. The countries’ leading diplomats are expected to focus on the Syria issue during the talks, Hurriyet daily reported.

Cavusoglu is set to meet with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov in Moscow on March 14.
In addition to discussing Syria, the ministers will make preparations for an upcoming high-level Russian-Turkish Cooperation Council meeting, which is scheduled for April 3.
During his visit to Moscow on March 14-16, Cavusoglu will pay a visit to the Moscow International Travel & Tourism Exhibition (MITT), deliver a speech on “Turkish foreign policy” at the MGIMO University and meet with chief editors of the prominent Russian media.
“The parties will focus particular attention on the fight against international terrorism, efforts to stabilize the situation in Syria and ways to find a political solution in light of the results of the Syrian National Dialogue Congress in Sochi,” Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said last week.
