Vladimir Putin highly assessed the decision made by the Turkish parliament to bloc the possibility of using the country's military bases for US armed forces operations against Iraq.
The Russian President declared at a session with government members in the Kremlin on Tuesday that this is "the most important event" of the last days.
"May be it was unexpected for somebody but not for Russia," said the head of state and added that "we understand what the Turkish parliament was guided by."
