The latest contacts between Russia and Turkey at the summit level will set the right tone to the normalization of relations, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said at a meeting with Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu on Friday, the TASS news agency reported.

Before the meeting Cavusoglu greeted Russian journalists in Russian.

"We appreciate the opportunity for discussing relations after the Turkish president’s message to the Russian president and their telephone conversation," Lavrov said. "We do hope this contact will set the right tone for the normalization of relations."

"We will discuss that process today," he added.
