• Lavrov linked the simplified visa regime with Turkey security

  • A return to a simplified visa regime with Turkey requires the solution of problems in the security sphere. This was during a press conference after talks with Turkish counterpart Mevlut Cavusoglu, said the foreign Minister of Russia Sergey Lavrov, reports the correspondent of".ru".

    "We asked our Turkish colleagues to collaborate more effectively in identifying individuals involved in terrorist activities," Lavrov said.

    According to him, the exchange of such information provides a bilateral Consular Convention, but not always implemented its provisions. The Minister of foreign Affairs of Russia has informed that for strengthening work in this direction, the parties agreed to hold special consultations.

    Russia has suspended the visa-free regime with Turkey from 1 January 2016. Sergei Lavrov warned about this step of the Turkish side in November 2015. According to him, this measure was linked to the security of Russia. "Through Turkey, militants are moving in different directions," he said then.

    Ankara has not imposed retaliatory restrictive measures against Russian citizens.
