Erdogan holds talks with leaders of Ukraine and Russia


Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said he will hold talks with his Ukrainian counterpart Volodymyr Zelensky and with Russian President Vladimir Putin soon.


This came in a statement to reporters on the plane during his return to Turkey after his participation in the emergency summit of leaders of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization “NATO”.

Erdogan said, “I will have a conversation today with Zelensky, and I may have another conversation with Putin at the end of this week or the beginning of next week.”

On food security, Erdogan said: “We are taking all necessary measures regarding food security, and God willing, we will not make our citizens face any difficulties in the holy month of Ramadan.”

Erdogan noted, “Many American and international companies are leaving Russia, and our doors are open to all who come to our country.”


Erdogan stressed that “NATO is not brain dead, as Macron previously said, and I think it was an unsuccessful statement, and he considers (Macron) one of the most active leaders of the alliance today.”
