Two Turkish sources informed Reuters on Thursday that Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan is scheduled to meet with his counterpart Vladimir Putin in the Russian resort city of Sochi on September 4. The main focus of their discussions will revolve around Black Sea grain exports.
The two leaders will discuss fallout from the war in Ukraine as well as a deal that allowed the export of Ukrainian grain via the Black Sea, one of the sources said.
The Black Sea grain deal, brokered by Turkiye and the United Nations in 2022, ended after Russia withdrew in July. Ankara has since sought to convince Moscow to return to the agreement.
