According to a statement from the Turkish prime ministry Monday, Yildirim is also expected to meet Russian President Vladimir Putin, and Chairwoman of the Council of the Federation, Valentina Matviyenko.

Bilateral relations, particularly in economic field, as well as regional and international developments will be discussed during Yildirim's visit, the statement said.
