Erdogan to visit Moscow on August 27

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan will visit Moscow on Tuesday for a meeting with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin, the Turkish presidency announced on Friday.

The presidency said that Erdogan will travel to Russia for a one-day visit without providing any further details. The meeting was confirmed by Kremlin spokesman Dimitry Peskov.

The news comes after a Turkish military convoy was hit by an airstrike while passing through Syria's Idlib province on Monday, killing three civilians. Ankara blamed "regime forces" for the attack while the Kremlin said that Erdogan and Putin agreed earlier in the day to "activate mutual efforts" to ease the situation in the province that is located on Syria's border with Turkey.
