Attacks on civilians in Ukraine slowed down the successful course of negotiations between Moscow and Kyiv, mediated by Ankara.

This was stated by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Anadolu reports .

“The parties have made tangible progress in the negotiations, but the footage from Bucha and Irpin, the use of Kramatorsk civilians as a target cast a shadow on our efforts,” Erdogan stated with regret.

At the same time, he noted that Turkey will continue to make all necessary efforts aimed at ending hostilities in Ukraine and achieving sustainable peace between Moscow and Kyiv.

“Achieving a truce and then a lasting peace between our two neighbors will be one of the best things done in the name of humanity,” the Turkish leader said.

“There will be no winner in this war because all of humanity is losing. In fact, as conflicts continue, both human losses and economic costs are growing. Our world is drifting towards great uncertainty,” Erdogan said.

The head of state assured that Turkey would strive to achieve a “satisfactory for the parties and the international community” result of the Russian-Ukrainian talks in Istanbul.

President Erdogan expressed confidence that a peaceful solution to the Ukrainian crisis could be found through dialogue and on the basis of maintaining the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Ukraine.

  1. When Biden expedited his disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan, Erdogan made an offer to Boris, which he tragically declined. The offer was in effect: if you agree to stay, then so will we and we will jointly assume responsibility for the stability of Afghanistan. Under that agreement, the Tallies would not have been allowed to take power. Furthermore, Boris, who has a distinguished Turkish antecedent, would have forged a powerful alliance. He could have perhaps influenced Erdogan to take a more conciliatory approach to the PKK.
    It might even been possible for Boris to get Erdogan off the fence regarding Ukraine.
    A combined force of Turkey, Poland, the UK and Ukraine could easily defeat the putinazis and permanently expel putler from Crimea and all occupied territories.
