Ankara has agreed in principle with Russian Federation on lifting visas for businessmen, truck drivers and service passport holders, Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu said Wednesday.
Speaking at a joint press conference with Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu in Ankara, Lavrov said: "The de-escalation zones were established based on some conditions".
"Of course our desire is the total lifting of visas", Cavusoglu said.

Meanwhile, Çavuşoğlu said ongoing efforts on visa-free travel for Turkish citizens in European Union countries would be intensified.
