ISTANBUL, June 15 (Reuters) - There are strong expectations about an improvement in Turkish relations with Russia, and Turkey's economy and tourism should benefit positively, an aide to President Tayyip Erdogan said on Wednesday.

Cemil Ertem also told broadcaster NTV in a live interview that he doesn't expect a change in monetary policy in the short-term.

Turkey's relations with Moscow soured after Ankara shot down a Russian warplane over Syria last year. Russia retaliated with a raft of sanctions against Turkey and the rift has also badly hurt the domestic tourist industry.
