7:07 pm
meeting between the rainy and and russian president is part of an ongoing process called the us start process. and this was set up and by iran, russia and turkey to basically coordinate efforts to bring an end to the syrian civil war. while they are on opposing sides, turkey, backing the rebels in iran and russia key allies of the are sad regime or they have been working to find a resolution to this conflict, or at least coordinating in controlling or the, or they conflict. but why turkey is looking for in this meeting, his permission to launch m a major offensive against syrian curves, which he claims a link to an insurgency fighting turkey. now these searing cards are key allies in the war against islamic stay with united states and other nato partners are but turkey insist that this is a threat to turkey and they want to launch another attack. this would be the latest in a series of attacks. took your to controls a large se wave of northern syria and they want to expand their influence. but iran and russia very cool about this,
7:08 pm
are very concerned about turkey's growing an influence in syria. so that's going to be a hard sell that's facing president nerd. one fit, the relationship between the turkey and russia is complicated, isn't it? dubbed, and turkey has bought russian weapon systems despite being in nato. but turkey is also supplied drones to ukraine. and as you say, opposes russia in syria. so how do relations between moscow and anchor a stand at the moment? well, like you said, the world complicated is the right one. in fact, this relationship between turkey and russia, they are 2 main regional powers in this, in this region is a combination of both rivalry and cooperation. and now more over the question of the ukranian conflict. like you said, turkey has been a key ally. ukraine has been earth one has been very outspoken in condemning russia, providing these grows, which have been key to ukraine's resistance against russia, fixing large amount of casualties on the russian forces. and according to sources, are also providing other sorts of military support as well. but at the same time,
7:09 pm
present urge one has not been enforcing western sanctions against russia. and that's been very important for russia. there's been a lot of reports of turkey importing. what ukraine says is stolen grain at the same time. there are growing concerns at turkeys is sanctions busting on a monumental sell over financial interests. in fact, we had a washington's deputy treasury secretary here last month where he is parentally warning turkey over this and turkey could even face washington sir, secondary sanctions over what many people believe his sanctions passing. now, encore, the nicest. but there is this concern, and this is why in many ways motto has been very muted in any criticism of turkey stance. and also a key factor is that turkey controls the gateway into the black sea and why it has stopped russian warships from entering the black sea, which don't belong to russia's black safely. it has also been keeping out nato warships. and that's really important for moscow in terms of keeping its iron grip on the black sea. i still got a little more about that because of the,
7:10 pm
the russia is still blockading. are these grain exports or from ukraine's, or how likely is it that we might see that's are removed as a result of these talks? what turkey has been in the forefront of those efforts to get this, the millions of tons of grain onto the well bart markets, which is causing flooring food prices growing shortages. and in fact, last week, turkey hosted russian, ukrainian and u. n. officials, web also i say progress was be made and the key part of the ones talks of putin today in toronto are over keeping momentum going on reaching agreement to get ukrainian grain on to well. markets are key test will be, see that those, that momentum is continuing if there are further talks with turkey, se could be held as early as later this week, or later in the month. thank you for that. dorian jones, in our stumble, well in ukraine, at least one resident was killed when russian missiles struck
