BREAKING: “France Not Sure To Receive Putin In Visit To Paris”
Vladimir Putin arrived in Istanbul on Monday at the invitation of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to participate in the 23rd World Energy Congress, which opened on October 9.
During his speech at the conference, the Russian president said that he was glad that the Turkish authorities had managed to “keep the situation under control” and prevent a coup in July. Putin also wished the country luck in its continued recovery from the coup attempt.
Putin said that he and President Erdogan had thoroughly discussed the joint Turkish Stream pipeline ahead of the visit, saying they “intend to implement” the project.
He also assured Russia’s foreign customers that the country will remain a reliable energy supplier to global markets.
The Russian leader expressed hope that an agreement on the stabilization of the oil market could be reached at the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) meeting on November 30.
“We support the recent OPEC initiative to fix production limits and hope that this idea will be embodied in specific agreements at the OPEC meeting in November, giving a positive signal to markets and investors,” he said.
The meeting of the two leaders will focus on restoring Russian-Turkish relations “in all aspects” and is going to provide the presidents with an opportunity to exchange views on a broad range of regional and international topics, first and foremost on the situation in Syria, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told RIA Novosti on Sunday.
Russia’s Foreign Ministry expressed hope that cooperation within the war-ravaged country will bear fruit and may even pave the way for joint action, pointing out that Ankara is ready to assist in the renewal of a ceasefire and to facilitate humanitarian aid deliveries.
On Tuesday, Turkish Defense Minister Fikri Isık said that Turkey wishes that “Russia and the US would not oppose [each other]”referring to the recent escalation of tensions between the two powers after Washington suspended cooperation on Syria. While the US cited Russia’s non-compliance with the deal, Moscow accused US of shielding terrorists, in particular former Jabhat Al-Nusra fighters, by failing to separate them from moderate rebels.
The Bible tells us that every human has sinned and fallen short of the glory of God which is is a heart-penetrating truth. He has provided a way to cleanse us of our sins since we can never be “good enough” to cleanse ourselves. That avenue to God’s grace, mercy and forgiveness (the cleansing of our sins) is through His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ of Nazareth Who is equally God.
Not one of us are guaranteed a “tomorrow”. Has your time run out? Will you continue to ignore the promptings of God the Holy Spirit or have you awakened to the essential need for God, risking eternal damnation?
God the Holy Father, God the Holy Son and God the Holy Spirit are One God, the true, living, uncreated God Who is ever-present, all knowing, all powerful and all loving. He desires that every single person be forgiven, saved and to live eternally with Him. He is our only real protection and His love for you is unchanging. Accept Jesus Christ as your Savior, the true Messiah, today.
You can’t take your salvation for a test drive. You’re all-in or not.
Admit to Him that you are a sinner in need of forgiveness, that you are truly sorry for your sins. Acknowledge that He died for your sins, rose from the dead and lives forevermore. Invite Him into your life and to help you to turn from sin. Rejoice! You just became a Christian! Now trust in Him and get to know Him through the Bible which tells us everything we need to know and through prayer/talking to Him. He eagerly desires relationship with you.
