Governor of Sverdlovsk Region Eduard Rossel spoke with Public Works and Housing Minister of Turkey Faruk Nafız Özak about the possibility of setting up Turkey’s diplomatic representation in Yekaterinburg.

The proposal was made in the course of the Governor’s meeting with a delegation of Turkish officials headed by the Minister. Among the delegates were the Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Republic of Turkey to Russia Halil Akyndzhi, Turkey’s leading bank representatives, and top executives of large construction enterprises.

‘We cooperate in many important fields; we have a rich joint history in the past and great collaboration now. We’ve got a lot in common, as a matter of fact: for one, Turkey, like Sverdlovsk Region, also serves as a bridge between Europe and Asia,’ the Minister said.
