Russian President Dmitriy Medvedev said on Friday that Turkey and Russia had cooperation opportunities in international and regional matters.
Holding a joint press conference with Turkish President Abdullah Gul in Moscow, Medvedev said that they discussed what could be done about security in Caucasus and Black Sea. He added that they exchanged views about Caucasus Stability & Cooperation Platform which was a proposal of Turkey.
Medvedev recalled the crisis which emerged in Caucasus in August, 2008, and said that what happened in Caucasus showed that the regional countries had the ability to solve problems without external intervention.
Turkey offered a proposal, Caucasus Stability and Cooperation Platform (CSCP), during Gerogian-Russian war, as an additional platform to facilitate the communication between the countries of the region. It aims at a framework to develop stability, confidence and cooperation, a forum for dialog.
Turkish President is currently in Russia on a state visit. Earlier in the day, Gul held meetings with State Duma Speaker Boris Gryzlov and Sergey Mironov, chairman of the Council of Federation of the Federal Assembly of Russia. He is also set to receive Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin.
