Russia's President Putin 'Snubs' Turkey's President Erdogan At The Paris Climate Summit


Moscow Times: Putin and Erdogan Will Not Meet in Paris — Peskov

Russian President Vladimir Putin and Turkish President Recep Erdogan will not meet in Paris, where they are both currently attending a summit on climate change, Russian media reported Monday, citing Putin's spokesman Dmitry Peskov.

“There are no plans to meet Erdogan [in Paris], there are no talks about such a meeting. There will be no such meeting,” Peskov was cited by the TASS state-owned news agency as saying Monday.

An unidentified Turkish official confirmed to Reuters on Monday that there will be no meeting, the RBC news agency reported.

WNU Editor: Their positions are so far apart that even I do not see the point of such a meeting. In fact .... it will probably only aggravate the situation, especially since Turkey is refusing to "apologize", and Russia now seeing Turkey as a "hostile" power.
