Erdoğan Announced New Talks With Zelenskyy and Putin

Friday, 9 December 2022

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has announced new negotiations with the presidents of Ukraine and the Russian Federation.

He said this on Friday, reports the Turkish state agency Anadolu.

"Turkey's diplomatic efforts on Ukraine are based on the idea that there can be no winners in war, and no losers in the world," Erdoğan emphasised.

He also noted that the war between the Russian Federation and Ukraine is associated with serious political, economic, and humanitarian damage to the entire world. According to him, Türkiye firmly supports the territorial integrity of Ukraine.

At the same time, Türkiye opposed inciting contradictions in the region through "unthinkable policies towards the Russian Federation," Erdogan said.

On Sunday, December 11, Turkish President Tayyip Erdoğan said that he will speak to Russia's Vladimir Putin on Sunday, and he will also speak to Ukraine's Volodymyr Zelenskyy in order to strengthen the UN-backed Black Sea grain deal.

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu said in early December that Ankara expects to see a "clearer picture" of a ceasefire in the war in Ukraine or a return to the negotiating table by the spring of 2023.
