President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has met with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin in St. Petersburg.

Commenting on the failed coup attempt in Turkey on July 15, Putin said Moscow was against all manners of coup attempts and such unlawful ways to oust legitimate governments.

Erdoğan also expressed happiness over Russia’s high-level phone call after the coup attempt.

The president said a very different and positive process has begun in bilateral relations.

The visit marks a first since last November when Turkey downed a Russian fighter along its border with Syria and is also Erdoğan’s first foreign visit after a failed coup attempt on July 15 in Turkey.
