Erdogan to travel to Russia for talks with Putin

Recep Tayyip Erdogan has accepted an invitation to hold talks with his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin, over Ankara"s military offensive in northeast Syria.

The meeting between the two leaders will take place at the Black Sea resort of Sochi on October 22.   
Putin invited Erdogan "for a working visit in the coming days and the invitation was accepted".
Dmitry Peskov, spokesman for Putin, meanwhile, denied speculation that Syrian President Bashar al – Assad would join the Russian and Turkish leaders for trilateral talks. 
Turkey"s military offensive began last week after Trump announced his decision to pull troops out of northeastern Syria.
