Baku, March 29, AZERTAC

Russian and Ukrainian negotiators arrived in Istanbul on Monday for a new round of peace talks between Moscow and Kyiv, according to Anadolu Agency.

A private plane carrying the Russian delegation landed at Istanbul’s Ataturk Airport at around 4 p.m. local time (1300GMT) while the Ukrainian delegation arrived in Istanbul at around 10 p.m. local time (1900GMT).

The two-day peace talks, to be held at the presidential Dolmabahce office, are set to start at 10.30 a.m. local time (0730GMT) on Tuesday.

The talks will be closed to the press, according to the Turkish Foreign Ministry.

Several rounds of peace talks between Russia and Ukraine have been held in Belarus so far, with no concrete results achieved yet.

On March 10, Turkiye made headlines worldwide for hosting the Russian and Ukrainian foreign ministers in the southern city of Antalya, the highest-level meeting of the two sides since the war began on Feb. 24.

Turkiye has won widespread praise for its efforts to end the war, helped by its unique position in having friendly relations with both Russia and Ukraine.
