+Grim Reaper 6 Posted March 26 #1 Share Posted March 26 Quote President Recep Tayyip Erdoğa called for an “immediate” end to the war in Ukraine during a call with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Saturday. Erdoğan “highlighted the importance Türkiye attaches to the immediate cessation of the Russia-Ukraine conflicts through negotiations” and “thanked President Putin for his positive stance regarding the extension of the Black Sea Grain Initiative,” according to a statement from Turkey’s Directorate of Communications. Erdoğan’s appeal for a ceasefire and negotiations come on the heels of a similar call for an end to hostilities made by China and Belarus earlier this month. However, the two countries’ efforts were largely eyed with skepticism by the West, as both appear to have drawn increasingly close to Russia. While Turkey has largely maintained economic ties with Russia throughout its yearlong war in Ukraine, Ankara ordered companies last month to halt the transit of goods to Russia that are sanctioned by the U.S. and European Union, Bloomberg reported. https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/erdoğan-calls-for-immediate-end-to-war-in-ukraine-during-call-with-putin/ar-AA195hSp?cvid=9dec77ffd166455d8da87209dde7b0b6&ei=31 4 Top Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
