Russia, Turkey continue talks to lift remaining trade restrictions – Kremlin

Russia and Turkey continue talks to lift their remaining mutual trade restrictions, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Wednesday.

“Contacts and negotiations with the Turkish side are ongoing,” Peskov told reporters in confirming certain import restrictions from Turkey that remain in place.

Relations between the two countries were severely strained after a Turkish F-16 combat aircraft shot down a Russian Su-24 close to the Syria–Turkey border in November 2015.
