Erdogan's phone call with Putin 'very productive'

Erdogan's phone call with Putin 'very productive' Turkish presidential sources say.

ANKARA, June 29 (Reuters) - Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan's phone call with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday was "very productive and positive", Turkish presidential sources said, adding that a written statement would be made shortly.

 

The phone call was arranged after Erdogan expressed regret in a letter to Putin on Monday over Turkey's downing of a Russian warplane last year, although the Kremlin later sought to dampen Turkey's hopes for a swift restoration of normal relations.
