Russian President Vladimir Putin is to meet Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip to discuss the Syrian conflict, which has strained bilateral relations.

Moscow is a key ally of Syria, while Ankara is backing the rebels trying to oust Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

In October, Turkey intercepted a Syria-bound plane which it said had Russian-made defence equipment - a claim rejected by both Moscow and Damascus.

The talks in Istanbul are also expected to focus on energy issues.
