Putin to visit Turkey for football friendly match

Ankara, Aug 24 (IANS) Russian President Vladimir Putin will arrive in Turkey to watch a football match between Russian and Turkish teams on August 31 in Antalya city, the media reported on Wednesday.

Turkish President Erdogan will also attend the friendship match, Xinhau news agency reported.

The media reported on July 28 that Turkey will host Russia in a football friendly match ahead of the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers, a step to help repair the strained bilateral relations after the jet-downing incident in November last year.

The two countries began last month to take positive measures to restore the relations, which have been improved since Turkish President Erdogan visited Russia earlier this month.
