Putin and Erdogan boost Russian Turkish trade ties
Published October 10, 2016 The Wall Street Journal
The Turkish and Russian leaders strengthened their rapprochement on Monday by emphasizing new trade deals that boost their ailing economies while minimizing their deep tensions on security matters.
On the sidelines of a global energy summit in Istanbul, Presidents Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Vladimir Putin signed a deal for the long-delayed TurkStream natural gas project that would allow Russia a new pipeline to reach European markets during a time when Moscow is struggling with sanctions against parts of its economy following its incursion into Ukraine.
In return, Mr. Putin lifted import barriers on some Turkish agricultural products that he established last year, when bilateral relations froze after Turkey shot down a Russian jet fighter near the Syrian border.
The two leaders didn’t make any breakthroughs on the vexing problems in Syria, where both nations are playing key roles as military powers and as supporters of opposing sides of the war there. The two leaders said they were willing to work together to stop the bloodshed there, but provided no details.
Still Mr. Erdogan put a rosy spin on the meeting, his third with Mr. Putin since June, as a positive step for his nation’s economy.
“The president and I have had a very full day, discussing Turkey-Russia relations,” Mr. Erdogan said, listing renewed pledges to cooperate and improve links on issues including trade, energy, defense industries and the Syrian conflict. “I am a firm believer that the normalization process between Turkey and Russia will go ahead full steam.”
As we have said previously following the attempted coup in Turkey that what happens from here on will be interesting to watch. Well again we continue to see things develop as we would expect based on Bible Prophecy as we fully expect based on Bible Prophecy that Turkey will be with Russia and Europe when they invade the Middle East as described in Ezekiel 38. We fully expect to see Russia become more closely linked to Europe militarily whereby Russia will become a “guard” unto the European Nations according to Ezekiel 38:7.
Also Ezekiel 38:6 says that “Gomer (France), and all his bands; the house of Togarmah (Turkey) of the north quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee.”
So somehow Turkey will be involved with Russia and it’s Army and the move into the Middle East.

Bible Truth & Prophecy is an exciting on-line tool for establishing just how far removed from the teachings of the Bible mainstream Christian teaching has become.
End Time Prophecies are interpreted using the Bible, not man made ideas or notions.
Key Biblical subjects such as the Trinity, Devil/Satan worship, Holy Spirit Gifts & much more are all dealt with extensively from the Bible’s viewpoint and not man’s.
We will demonstrate how Christian beliefs have become corrupted, and reveal the ‘Truth’ as taught by the 1st Century Apostles.
