Russian Foreign Minsiter Sergei Lavrov and his French counterpart Jean-Marc Ayrault commented on the Syrian crisis, Russia's relations with Turkey, the Istanbul airport attack and bilateral ties during a joint press conference in Paris. 


The French foreign minister said that Russia and France are partners and need to work together despite difficulties. 


Ayrault said that none of French companies left the Russian market despite EU sanctions against Russia.
In June, the French Senate passed by overwhelming majority a resolution calling on the government to ease sanctions against Russia. The National Assembly, France's lower house of parliament, adopted a similar resolution in April. 


The French top diplomat also said that the upcoming NATO summit in Warsaw should not be a summit of confrontation with Russia. Lavrov said that Russia will closely monitor the NATO summit, including alliance's decisions on the activity near Russian borders. 


"I think that transparency and openness will dominate our relations, and we have a lot of work to do in this respect," Ayrault stressed. 


He also said that the Russia-NATO Council meeting may be held after the alliance's summit in Poland. 


The Russian foreign minister repeated his earlier calls to the West to urge Syrian opposition groups to cut ties with al-Nusra terrorist groups.
He said that Russia is ready to cooperate with all countries on the Syrian conflict settlement. 


Lavrov said that he hopes dialogue with Turkey will be restored to solve the Syrian crisis. 


The statement comes following the phone talks between Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan. The leaders agreed to restore cooperattion, inluding in the spheres of trade, tourism and the fight against terrorism. 


"Now when the Turkish president’s apologies to the President of Russia have been received, when they discussed the possibilities of normalizing relations today by phone, I believe we and our Turkish partners will resume cooperation to solve the Syrian crisis," Lavrov said. 


Speaking after talks with French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault in Paris, Lavrov stressed that Ankara was responsible in preventing the use of its territory as a transit point for terrorists traveling to Syria and Iraq. 


The French and Russian foreign ministers agreed on the need to jointly fight against terrorism after the deadly Istanbul airport attack on late Tuesday, Ayrault said. 


"At the moment we want to express our solidarity with the Turkish people, with all our friends, to express our sympathy and condolences to the relatives of the victims... Boosting international cooperation is needed to combat terrorism," Ayrault said at a joint press conference with Lavrov. 


Meanwhile, the Russian foreign minister said, commenting on the Istanbul attack, that joint efforts of all states needed to combat terrorism. He added that only by condemning such attacks, terrorism will not be defeated
