The leaders of Russia and Turkey have patched up a damaging quarrel, pledging to restore close economic relations.

Russian President Vladimir Putin said Russian trade sanctions on Turkey would be phased out "step by step".

He told Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in St Petersburg, that the priority is to get back to the pre-crisis level of co-operation,"

Their relations soured last November when Turkey shot down a Russian bomber on the Syrian border.
