MOSCOW. Sept 30 (Interfax) - The talks Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan held in Sochi on Wednesday were constructive, timely, and useful for both sides, Russian presidential press secretary Dmitry Peskov said.

The two presidents discussed bilateral relations above all, he said.

In particular, Putin and Erdogan talked about agriculture, Peskov said.

"Russia supplies huge amounts of grain to Turkey, and Turkey's delivery of tomatoes, cucumbers, and other products to Russia is well known - all that was on the agenda of the talks between the two presidents," he said.

Tourism was also discussed by the heads of Russia and Turkey, Peskov said.
