Feb 28, 2024

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said that Ankara continues to support a peaceful settlement of Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine and is ready to offer a platform for such "negotiations."

He said this in a video address to the participants of the Ukraine-Southeast Europe summit on February 28, Anadolu Agency quoted him as saying.

Erdogan emphasized Turkey's support for Ukraine's independence, sovereignty, security, and territorial integrity, as well as the desire to protect "the rights and interests of our Crimean Tatar compatriots."


"Despite the fact that we have entered the third year of the war and despite all our efforts, there has been insufficient progress towards peace. I remain committed to the fact that diplomacy and dialogue must be given a chance to end the war with a just and lasting peace," he added.

In this regard, the Turkish President called for joint work to "define the general parameters of peace" and assured that in this regard, Ankara "fundamentally supports" the "peace formula" proposed by Ukraine.
