Lavrov names main agenda of Erdogan’s visit to Russia

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said that political settlement in Syria, including in light of a Constitutional Committee meeting, will be discussed during Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s visit to Russia.

"Of course, it is primarily the situation in Syria," TASS cited him as saying.

The tasks related to ensuring Syria’s sovereignty and territorial integrity and "an uncompromising fight against terrorist units remaining" in the country, the top Russian diplomat noted.

Also, efforts aimed at "facilitating the political process" by convening the first meeting of the Constitutional Committee will be discussed, Lavrov added.

Earlier, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov stated that Erdogan's visit could take place in October.  

Yesterday, Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan hashed over Ankara’s operation in Syria during a telephone conversation. Putin invited his Turkish counterpart to visit Russia in the coming days, and the invitation was accepted.
