The Russian Culture Ministry is mulling over preparations for Russia-Turkey years of culture, a representative of the ministry press service told Interfax.
"The two culture ministers held negotiations in March 2015 to prepare Russian-Turkish years of culture and tourism in 2017-2018. An agreement was reached to hold a year of Turkish culture and tourism in Russia in 2017 and a year of Russian culture and tourism in Turkey in 2018," he said.
"The issue of preparing these years is now being considered," he said.
The Russian and Turkish culture ministries agreed to cooperate back in December 2014, after the presidents had met in Ankara.
Russian-Turkish relations exacerbated a lot after the attack of the Turkish Air Force on the Russian Sukhoi Su-24 bomber in the Syrian airspace, in which one Russian pilot died.
