Turkish President Erdogan to visit Russia on Aug. 5

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan will visit the Russian coastal city of Sochi on Aug. 5 to meet with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin, the Turkish presidency announced Tuesday.

The presidency had no further details on the visit.

The visit comes just days after Türkiye, the UN, Russia, and Ukraine signed a landmark deal to resume grain exports through three Ukrainian ports after months of blockage due to the Russia-Ukraine war, now in its sixth month. The exports are due to resume soon, coordinated by a center in the Turkish metropolis Istanbul.

Last Wednesday, Erdogan and Putin met during a trilateral gathering with their Iranian counterpart Ebrahim Raisi in Iran's capital Tehran. The leaders gathered for the 7th summit in the Astana format to discuss recent developments in Syria, the fight against terror groups which pose a threat to regional security, particularly the YPG/PKK and Daesh/ISIS, as well as the humanitarian situation and the voluntarily return of Syrians.
