In mind the beginning of the warming relations between Ankara and Moscow, Turkish foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu expressed hope that now the trade turnover with Russia can be increased to $ 100 billion. This assumption was expressed in a paper which publishes “Kommersant”.
He said that the locomotive of the Turkish-Russian relations are energy, economy and trade. According to him, if in the early 2000s, the volume of bilateral trade reached $ 5 billion, then he has skyrocketed to $ 40 billion. For doubling that figure, said Cavusoglu, the countries have the “all opportunities and necessary potential.”
