ANKARA (Reuters) - Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim will meet Russian President Vladimir Putin during a visit on Dec. 5 and 6, prime ministry sources said.

Russia and Turkey, a NATO member, are backing opposing sides in the Syrian conflict. In recent months they have been normalizing ties that broke down a year ago when Turkey shot down a Russian warplane near the border with Syria.
