"We welcome the Russian decision to lift visa requirements for service passport holders and drivers conducting international transportation," Hami Aksoy said in response to a question in the Foreign Ministry building.

He said that Turkey and Russia were negotiating over implementing the decree at the earliest time, adding that Ankara looked forward to a visa lift for Turkish citizens with ordinary passports and implementing all articles of the visa agreement hammered out in 2010.
