Of course, the main topic of our negotiations was the (Ukrainian) crisis, which has been going on for about six years.” For several months, I reaffirmed our unwavering solidarity and support for the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Ukraine, and also stated that we will lead to a crisis through diplomacy and negotiations.. During my visit, I told Zelensky that we we can hold a meeting (between the presidents of Russia and Ukraine).”

He pointed out that during the trilateral meeting (Erdogan, Zelensky and UN Secretary General António Guterres), steps were discussed that could be taken to activate the mechanism created for the export of Ukrainian grain through the Black Sea.
