Dr Bruno Surdel for Radio Wnet on the Putin – Erdoğan meeting: Turkey’s relationship with Russia is strategic for both sides. [04.09.2023]
„Turkey and Russia have military, tourist, trade ties; Russia is building a nuclear power plant next to Mersin in southern Turkey. President Erdogan will want to bring about the renewal of the grain deal and the release of Ukrainian grain so that it can be transported to the world via Black Sea ports. This is necessary to improve the situation on the global food market,” – Dr Surdel explained.
