Davutoglu: Rising energy prices affect Turkey

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said that rising energy prices are affecting Turkey.

“We cannot remain indifferent to this issue just because the situation in Turkey is better than in Europe or any other region of the world. Energy prices, of course, also affect us. Gas prices in other regions have risen three to four times… after all,” he added. This is a global problem… and the solution is in our hands.”

According to him, the continuation of the conflict in Ukraine has led to very serious crises, especially energy and food.

And the President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, has previously stated the need to introduce a price ceiling for Russian gas.

At the end of August, Ursula von der Leyen also announced that the European Commission is working on prompt and long-term measures to improve the situation against the backdrop of high electricity prices in the European Union, which mainly depend on the cost of “blue fuel”.

On September 2, G7 finance ministers reaffirmed a plan to set a price ceiling for Russian oil and called on “all countries” to join the initiative.
