There are no forbidden topics between Moscow and Ankara, according to Russia's new ambassador to Turkey, Alexei Erkhov.
"We discuss all issues of mutual interest. There are no forbidden topics between us, we do not have taboos. And discussion of all these issues is conducted in the form of a direct, mutually beneficial and friendly dialogue," Erkhov told Anadolu Agency (AA) on Thursday.
"This is quite important," he added.
Russian President Vladimir Putin paid a working visit on Sept. 28 to Ankara, where he met President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan. The two leaders exchanged views on bilateral relations and recent regional developments, particularly Syria and Iraq.
About the leaders' meeting, Erkhov said it was productive, and added: "They discussed international developments. Regional problems were also handled. The most critical issues topping our bilateral ties were addressed."
The ambassador said bilateral relations are developing successfully.
Erkhov, previously head of the Russian Foreign Ministry's Crisis Management Center, replaced Andrey Karlov, who was assassinated at an art exhibition in Ankara last December.
Turkish-Russian relations were tested after Karlov's assassination, but both countries called the shooting as a provocation designed to undermine bilateral ties.
