Turkish foreign minister to visit Russia, Ukraine for talks

Baku, March 16, AZERTAC

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu is set to visit Russia, followed by Ukraine, amid ongoing diplomatic efforts to end the war between the two countries, Turkiye's president said on Tuesday, according to Anadolu Agency.

Cavusoglu will hold talks in Moscow on Wednesday before traveling to Ukraine on Thursday, Recep Tayyip Erdogan said after chairing a nearly three-hour-long Cabinet meeting in the capital Ankara.

This comes days after Cavusoglu hosted a landmark tripartite meeting with his counterparts from these two countries on the sidelines of the Antalya Diplomacy Forum, held last week in southern Turkiye. Nearly 400 local and foreign journalists came to the resort city to follow the meeting.

"The Ukraine crisis has reminded us that it is not a choice but an obligation for Turkiye to be strong in the political, economic, and military fields and to be in a position to support its friends and brothers beyond its self-sufficiency," he said.
