Putin and Erdogan pledge to end stand-off and restore friendship





The Russian and Turkish presidents vowed to restore their friendship yesterday, ending an eight-month stand-off over the Syrian conflict as economic pressures and the failed Turkey coup drive the two regional powers together.



Vladimir Putin greeted Recep Tayyip Erdogan at a former imperial residence outside St Petersburg overlooking the Gulf of Finland, for their first meeting since Turkish forces shot down a Russian military aircraft on the Syrian border in November last year.

俄罗斯总统弗拉基米尔•普京(Vladimir Putin)在圣彼得堡外俯瞰芬兰湾的前皇家庭院会见了土耳其总统雷杰普•塔伊普•埃尔多安(Recep Tayyip Erdogan)。这是自土耳其军队去年11月在叙利亚边境上空击落一架俄罗斯军机以来两人首次会晤。


The “axis of friendship” between Moscow and Ankara had been resurrected, Mr Erdogan said following more than four hours of talks, adding that relations between the two countries would be closer than before the quarrel over Syria that brought them to the brink of military conflict.



Ties “are a lot more robust than ever, and they will help us resist any potential crises”, Mr Erdogan added, addressing his Russian counterpart as “my dear friend” three times in as many minutes.



The Turkish leader’s choice of Russia for his first foreign trip since last month’s failed coup gave the summit broader geopolitical significance, with some in the west fearing that the Nato member might be drawn into the Kremlin’s orbit, despite their support for opposite sides in the Syria conflict.



Mr Erdogan was incensed by what he saw as a lack of solidarity from his Nato allies following the attempted putsch and criticism of the ensuing crackdown. In contrast, he welcomed the Kremlin’s unequivocal backing.



The western world must show solidarity with Turkey, which has adopted its democratic values,” Mr Erdogan told Le Monde newspaper in an interview published yesterday. “Unfortunately, western leaders have preferred to leave Turkish people to themselves.”

在昨天发表的一篇访谈中,埃尔多安向《世界报》(Le Monde)表示:“对于接受了西方民主价值观的土耳其,西方世界必须对它展现出团结。不幸的是,西方领导人宁愿让土耳其人民自生自灭。”


He added: “Instead of showing empathy, western leaders had the opposite reaction. This makes us sad and it is unacceptable.”

他还说:“他们非但没有表现同情,而且作出了相反的反应。这让我们遗憾,这是不可接受的。” 广州俄语翻译公司。


Despite the detente, Mr Putin was more reserved, breaking barely a smile at a news conference. “There have been dramatic periods in our relations, but inevitably our mutual respect gained the upper hand,” he said. “We want to and we will restore relations to the full dimension. We feel the sincerity of our Turkish friends and want to do this.”



Mr Putin reacted furiously when the Turkish military shot down the Russian fighter after it allegedly crossed into Turkey’s airspace while patrolling northern Syria. The Kremlin imposed a series of embargoes on Turkey covering tourism, construction and food exports to Russia. It also denounced Mr Erdogan as an autocrat and accused his family of profiting from the illegal oil trade with Isis militants in Syria.



But yesterday, he said full restoration of economic and trade ties was “only a question of time”. Moscow and Ankara would seek to develop economic relations under a three-year programme running until 2019, he added. He did not give concrete deadlines for the revival of a visa-free travel regime and Russian charter flights to Turkey.
