"Moscow supports the idea of organizing a meeting between the Turkish and Syrian foreign ministers Mevlut Cavusoglu and Faisal Mekdad, respectively, and is ready to provide its site if necessary," Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov told Sputnik on Monday, APA's correspondent in Moscow reports.

"Of course, we think that (the Cavusoglu-Mekdad meeting) would be useful.

We are talking about establishing contacts, now so far through the military and special services, there have been such contacts. We support them, encourage them to meet, find common ground in positions," Bogdanov said, adding that if Türkiye and Syria want, "we are always ready to host (the meeting)."
