Putin-Erdogan meeting.  Vladimir Putin was waiting for the President of Turkey [Wideo]

Vladimir Putin enters the room expecting Recep Tayyip Erdogan to join him quickly. However, this is not the case – for less than a minute, the Russian president has to wait impatiently for his Turkish counterpart. The cameras recorded the embarrassing situation.

Russian President Vladimir Putin met in Iranian Tehran With Recep Tayyip Erdogan. However, the handshake preceded the expectations of the Russian president from his Turkish counterpart.

The video, which lasted less than a minute, shows Putin with his hands clasped in front of him, as he moves from one foot to the other and looks around the room. When the Turkish president finally appears, Putin extends his hands, slaps his hip, and then takes a few steps to shake his hand and pose with Erdogan in front of the cameras.

This was an unusual situation for a Russian leader who over the years had earned a reputation for making world leaders wait for themselves. Some commentators speculate that the events in Tehran are revenge for what happened in Moscow in 2020, when Erdogan had to wait two minutes for Putin.

Joyce Karam, the UAE-based English-language correspondent for The National, commented, “The 50 seconds Erdogan made to wait for Putin tells us a lot about how much has changed after the events in Ukraine.” In her view, it could also be Erdogan’s “gentle revenge” for Putin’s delay in Moscow.

A balanced psychological policy.

Some observers believe that Putin’s delay in his meetings with international leaders is a deliberate psychological policy dating back to the beginning of his presidency, according to The Guardian. In 2003, Putin was 14 minutes late to meet Queen Elizabeth, and in 2012 – three hours late to meet John Kerry in Moscow.

According to Radio Free Europe, in 2014 there was already a German chancellor Angela Merkel I waited 4 hours and 15 minutes to meet Putin Viktor YanukovychWhen he was president of Ukraine (2010-2014), he waited for the meeting for four hours.

In June 2015, Putin was an hour late to meet Pope Francis in the Vatican. In turn, in 2018 he was the then President of the United States Donald Trump The President of Russia waited 45 minutes before the planned Helsinki summit.
