Meanwhile, Turkish confectioner Hasan Acar has decided to bolster Russian-Turkish relations by presenting Russian President Vladimir Putin with his trademark börek, a Turkish savory pie. Acar says that the pie will be a token of gratitude for the recent delivery of the much-awaited S-400 anti-missile systems to Turkey.
According to the baker, the pie with a cheese and spinach filling will weigh four kilos. Acar baked and sent the pie on Saturday, 13 July, while the delivery is expected to arrive in Moscow within five days. According to the confectioner, the börek can be consumed within 10 days after its production.
"President Putin said he would like to go to a Turkish restaurant during his latest visit. I would like to invite him to our beautiful ancient city of Bursa and my restaurant where I'll treat him with the best börek," said Acar.
