A meeting between President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin may be held on March 5 or 6, Kremlin said Friday.
"At the moment we are exploring the possibility of holding a meeting at the highest level on March 5 or 6, that is next week," Kremlin spokesman Dmitri Peskov said.
The two presidents discussed the possibility of face-to-face talks during a phone conversation Friday, Peskov said.
