Turkey agrees with Russian Federation over partial lifting of visas

Russia’s chemical disarmament confirmed by OPCW while US has ‘problems’ in the area – Lavrov

Relations between Turkey and the European Union have begun normalizing, and Ankara is determined to step up the visa liberalization dialogue with the bloc, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said amid recently exacerbated Ankara-Washington tensions.

The agreement was the fifth of its kind between Western European governments since June when the new populist government in Italy - a main landing point for migrant boats bearing Africans across the water - began turning away NGO rescue vessels.

As China.org writes in an article "Turkey, Russia come closer amid common tension with US", Russia hopes that a reasonable approach will prevail in global relations and countries will return to a depoliticized dialogue, Lavrov said.

Ranveer Singh , Hrithik Roshan , Alia Bhatt , Varun Dhawan , Sonam Kapoor and others have taken their time to leave her wishes. Nick's family flew to India for the ceremony, meeting Priyanka's family for the first time.

Turkey has done enough to fix its ties with the United States, Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said on Monday, adding that Washington had acted contrary to their alliance regarding fundamental security issues. Turkey and Russian Federation will take steps to "enhance strategic partnership", Sergey Lavrov said here on Tuesday.

"Turkey has not done any wrong to the USA, not even once".

Turkey and the USA are now experiencing rocky relations following Washington's imposition of sanctions on two government ministers for not releasing American pastor Andrew Brunson, who faces terrorism-related charges in Turkey.

The U.S. President Donald Trump doubled tariffs on Turkish steel and aluminum exports to the U.S. last week, prompting Ankara to raise tariffs on some American good, such as cars, tobacco and alcohol. Russia's retaliatory measures against Ankara included restrictions on the activities of Turkish organizations in Russia, a hiring freeze on Russian employers that want to employ Turkish workers and a ban on certain food imports since January 1, 2016. Moscow recently declared Moscow will decrease its holdings of US assets in retaliation against increasing tariffs imposed by Trump on Russian Federation and Turkey.

Russia's Foreign Ministry said Sunday in a statement that Moscow is "willing" to lift the visa regime in some categories for Turkish citizens.

Lavrov noted that USA sanctions, including those against Turkey, undermine all principles of global trade. These four countries are also known to have been opposing the sanctions of the USA on Iran.
