“It didn’t just answer questions. It provided a multi-layered analysis of the issues we discussed as a whole.”

Drawing attention to the close relationship between Erdogan and his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin, Gusman said, “Yes, there may be different perspectives on many issues. Their analyzes or some of their evaluations may differ. But it is vital for the world.” These leaders have a trusting relationship, which is very important.”

Noting that the documentary was shown twice on state television in the last two days and reached millions of people, Erdoğan said, “It is very important to introduce Erdoğan to the Russian audience. Unfortunately, people in Turkey and Russia do not know much about it. World leaders and even leaders of neighboring countries. .. Turkey has been our neighbor and partner for many years. President Erdogan has been in power for many years. It is very important to paint a full portrait of him and tell his story.”

Gusman said that he wants to interview Erdogan for the 5th time and he would be very happy if that happens.
