President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said Wednesday night that steps taken to normalize relations with Russia and Israel are based on a "win-win" principle for all three countries. "We never thought of a one-sided step," Erdoğan said at an iftar dinner in Ankara. All steps taken were "based on the win-win principle," he said. "In other words, both Turkey and Russia must win, both Turkey and Israel must win as a result of these negotiations and agreements." Both Russia and Israel are key trade partners for Turkey and commercial ties suffered as a result of frosty relations.Earlier on Wednesday, Erdoğan had a telephone conversation with his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin, emphasizing the importance of normalizing the relations between the two countries, more than seven months after Turkey downed a Russian Su-24 attack aircraft that violated its airspace despite several warnings.
