Russian President Vladimir Putin has been meeting with his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan in Saint Petersburg.

The conference is intended to end a period of high tension following the Turkish downing of a Russian fighter jet near the Syrian border last November in which one Russian pilot was killed.

Russia imposed sanctions on Turkey. President Erdogan later apologised.

President Putin has expressed a wish for a restoration of relations and economic ties with Turkey. He said he is very happy to have this opportunity.

President Erdogan said that Turkey was entering a “very different period” in relations with Russia, and that solidarity between the two countries would help the resolution of regional problems.
