The message sent by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to Russian President Vladimir Putin on Russia Day is a matter of protocol and does not contain any provisions requiring a reply, Kremlin press secretary Dmitry Peskov has said.
"This is a protocol message: Such messages are traditionally exchanged on the occasion of national days. This is protocol, a customary practice in international relations. As a rule, these are no-reply messages," Peskov told reporters.
"Regretfully, the message does not contain any other, substantive provisions," he said.
