Turkish, Russian presidents meet in Tehran
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin met on the sidelines of a Syria summit in the Iranian capital Tehran on Friday.
The meeting came before the trilateral summit between Erdogan, Putin and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani at the Sadabad Palace.
Before having met with Putin, Erdogan also had a separate closed-door meeting with Rouhani.
During a trilateral summit, the leaders will discuss joint efforts as part of the Astana process and political efforts for finding a lasting solution to the Syrian conflict.
The first tripartite summit was held in Russia’s Black Sea resort of Sochi on Nov. 22 to discuss progress made in the Astana peace talks and changes in de-escalation zones across Syria.
The second trilateral meeting was hosted by Erdogan in April in the Turkish capital Ankara.
