Turkish, Russian FMs hold talks in BelgradeArchive
BELGRADE: The foreign ministers of Turkey and Russia met in Belgrade on Thursday in the first high-level bilateral talks since the downing of a Russian warplane by Turkish jets sparked an unprecedented crisis.
“The meeting between the two foreign ministers lasted for 40 minutes,” a Turkish foreign ministry official said, confirming it was now over but without giving further details.
The meeting between Russia’s Sergei Lavrov and Turkey’s Mevlut Cavusoglu, on the sidelines of the ministerial council of the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe, was also confirmed by a diplomatic source in Belgrade.
