Erdogan was shown standing and eventually sitting down before being ushered into a room where he shook Putin’s hand.
The meeting at the time aimed to ease tensions over the countries’ involvement in Syria.
During their recent meeting on Tuesday, talks focused on establishing a safe passage for Ukrainian grain shipments via the Black Sea.
Russia’s invasion of Ukraine – two major global wheat suppliers – has sent prices for grains and other food products soaring. It has stalled Kyiv’s exports, leaving dozens of ships stranded and some 20 million tons of grain stuck in silos at Odesa.
