In answer to questions from Russian news agency Regnum the Director General of the Turkish information agency Jihan, Abdul Hamid Bilichi, has said that Russia is indebted to Turkey for its conduct during the war in Georgia in August 2008. Turkey did not bow to US pressure and allow American warships to enter the Black Sea, and later presented certain models for regulating the situation in the Caucasus, both of which actions helped Russia.

Bilichi said that Russia should now help Turkey with certain foreign policy problems in return. It should help with Armenia, as the key to the regulation of the Karabakh problem is in Moscow, Bilichi said.
