Russian military to inspect Turkish area

A group of Russian inspectors will visit a designated location in Turkey to verify the information on the military activity in the area, the Chief of Directorate of Treaty Monitoring of the Russian Defense Ministry Sergey Ryzhkov said.

"Within the framework of Vienna Document 2011 on Confidence- and Security-Building Measures, a Russian group of inspectors will assess a designated area in Turkey on February 13-16," Sputnik cited Ryzhkov as saying.

Ryzhkov stressed that the inspection's goal is to confirm whether any military activity is being carried out in the area or not, and to establish its scale.

The official explained that Russian inspectors would visit training facilities and weapons ranges, as well as attend briefings of commanders of the military bases of the Turkish Armed Forces.
