"Diplomatic landing": Putin sent Shoigu and Lavrov to Turkey to resolve the Libyan issue


A senior "diplomatic landing" is heading from Moscow to Ankara. On June 14, 2020, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu are due to visit Turkey. This was stated by the press service of the Russian Foreign Ministry.


It is noted that the heads of the Russian departments will hold a series of consultations on regional issues of mutual interest with Turkish colleagues. An agreement on the visit was reached during the recent dialogue between the leaders of the two states. A few days before, Russian President Vladimir Putin and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan had a telephone conversation discussing regional and other issues.

Then the head of the Russian state expressed concern over the ongoing large-scale military operations in Libya. He pointed out the need for an early ceasefire in this North African country and the return of the parties to a peaceful settlement of the conflict as part of the decisions of the Berlin conference.

Note that in the expert community already in the open being discussed the likelihood of a clash between Russia and Turkey in Libya. Exactly the same assumptions were once in relation to Syria.

Therefore, it is not surprising that Putin is sending Shoigu and Lavrov to Ankara to resolve the Libyan issue. Russia and Turkey do not need a war between themselves. Countries prefer to negotiate, finding acceptable solutions, adhering to mutual respect and taking into account each other's interests.

    Turkey on Syria does not fulfill the agreement. Already installs air defense systems in Idlib. Putin has been puffing for 20 years, shows his importance. He starts correctly, but he has not yet completed a single business, promise. Syria - I agree, Assad called, but in Libya that they forgot?

      Well, if only the business should not go further. In fact, the Minister of War is not appointed for discussion, for this there is a Minister for Foreign Affairs. In fact, they have different tasks, although they do one thing. Maybe problems with the preparation of calculations of air defense systems have arisen, or maybe some other gadgets as a gift were taken. request

        Naturally, questions along the Shoigu line will be considered there.
        I just remembered the picture

          ... I remembered the picture

          good The picture, of course, is credible, but most likely it means “talking” with the Minister of Defense, in a figurative sense.
          It seems that one Mr. Lavrov does not have enough authority or eloquence for such negotiations. We also had to take the ministers of energy, construction and tourism with us and the main one for tomatoes. Maybe they will persuade the Sultan together, if, of course, the gifts are also at the level.

            This is exactly the impression. The inclusion of "specialized specialists" in the delegation is quite common.

            Maybe they will persuade the Sultan together, if, of course, the gifts are also at the level.

            And what should they persuade him to?

              Let's see what investment projects under the auspices of specialized experts will soon start and how this will affect, for example, the actions of the Turkish army in the Kurdish regions of Syria.

                As I understand it, they were going to discuss Libya. Under the auspices of the "profile specialist" Shoigu, investment projects in Turkey are not expected.

                  Well, what about? There and for him the field is not plowed. You can rearm the entire Turkish army and aviation, in advance or on credit. For the latest drying, boilers and tigers, the Turks have nothing of the kind.
                  It is impossible at such negotiations to separate Libya from Syria. In addition, I wrote - "for example."
                  The only thing I wanted to say was that the Minister of War plans to defend the country, ride to a likely enemy, just bend his fingers, he is worthless. On the other hand, in Syria, the "allies" may nevertheless mark a Turkish order for their enormous contribution to the detente and security of something and somewhere. request

    Behind the Turks, US ears are sticking out. They lead and direct the Turks for a military invasion of Libya. Until the Turks get their teeth, they won’t calm down.

    "Diplomatic landing": Putin sent Shoigu and Lavrov to Turkey to resolve the Libyan issue

    - Well, a disgrace ....
    - But recently I was given "bad signs" because I personally ... mmmm ... to put it mildly, did not agree with the opinion of some "authoritative representatives"; who claimed that ... what ... what ... "what a defeat" Erdogan suffered (he then flew to Moscow) ... and how Moscow "bent Erdogan" ... - Today, these "authoritative" something more and more began to duplicate me in their comments ... - they forgot, it is obvious that they themselves "broadcast" just yesterday ... - Well, well ... - it happens ...
    - Figase ... that's how they "bent" ... Erdogan ... - And so they flew to Erdogan to Turkey ....- even the Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation and the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation ... - both two at once ... - So easily ...
    - Well ... quite an honorable mission ... - Just no words ...
