Putin to visit Türkiye – Erdogan’s office

Russian President Vladimir Putin is set to visit Türkiye, the office of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced on Wednesday, without naming the specific date.

In a statement, the Turkish presidency said that the two leaders had spoken on the phone, and reached an agreement on a visit by Putin to the country. It added that presidents also discussed the UN- and Türkiye-mediated grain deal to unblock agricultural exports via the Black Sea. Moscow withdrew from the agreement last month, describing it as a “one-sided game” and pointing to the West’s failure to meet its Russia’s longstanding demands, including lifting sanctions that hinder its agricultural exports.

According to Erdogan’s office, the Turkish president noted the negative impact on poorer countries were the deal to remain indefinitely inactive. He added that Türkiye would “continue to make intensive efforts and pursue diplomacy” to maintain the agreement, the statement said.

The Kremlin confirmed the talks, noting that Putin and Erdogan agreed to maintain bilateral contact on multiple levels, “including in the context of preparations for a possible meeting between the two leaders.”

During the phone call, Putin explained that given the absence of progress in implementing the Russian part of the grain deal, the “next extension had lost its meaning,” the statement read. It added that Putin reiterated Moscow’s readiness to recommit to the agreement as soon as the West meets Russia’s demands.

The Kremlin has also said that Moscow is working to establish secure routes to supply the most vulnerable countries with Russian grain, “including free of charge.” It noted that this issue was raised at the Russia-Africa Summit last week, adding that Putin had expressed willingness to cooperate with Türkiye and other interested countries in this regard.
