Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan are scheduled to meet in January 2020 but may have a talk earlier, if they find it necessary, according to TASS.

“The ceremony heralding completion of all works on the Turkish Stream project is a good reason for personal contacts [between Putin and Erdogan]. It is scheduled to take place in January,” Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov told the media on Tuesday.

At the same time he remarked: “Putin and Erdogan agree to have telephone contacts rather quickly. In this case it can happen at any moment.”
