Erdogan says to meet Putin in Sochi next week

Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan will travel to Sochi to meet his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin on October 22, the presidential office in Ankara said.

The encounter is part of what Turkish officials called a one-day visit. Earlier, the Kremlin said Erdogan would be invited for a working visit.

The two leaders are bound to address the conduct of Turkish troops and their allied militias at the newly captured areas in Syria's north. Russia has provided guarantees as Syrian Democratic Forces, attacked in the offensive, agreed to let the Syrian Arab Army and other units loyal to President Bashar al-Assad to take up positions at the border.
