MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Thursday Moscow was ready for close cooperation with Turkey on fighting terrorism, in comments after a deadly blast that killed at least 97 people in Ankara last weekend.

"We are ready for very close cooperation and very close engagement with the Turkish authorities in the fight against the terrorist threat," Lavrov told a conference on Russian-Turkish partnership in Moscow.
