Erdogan’s spokesman Kalin: Turkey will promote the idea of local ceasefires in Ukraine
Turkey plans to promote the idea of local ceasefires in Ukraine, the Hurriyet newspaper reported, citing the official representative of the president of the republic, Ibrahim Kalın.
“Turkey intends to promote the idea of local truces and small local de-escalation measures,” he said.
According to the official, neither side can win in the conflict. At the same time, Calyn considers a comprehensive peace deal unlikely in the coming months.
Last week, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said Ankara supports Vladimir Zelenski’s ten-point plan to resolve the crisis. The Ukrainian leader announced it during the G20 summit in mid-November last year.
The Russian Foreign Ministry, in its turn, noted that it did not agree with Turkey’s position; Moscow had repeatedly reported on the unacceptability of this project. Presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov stressed that the plan, which does not take into account today’s realities with the incorporation of new regions into Russia, cannot claim to be peaceful.
At the same time, Moscow has repeatedly indicated that it is ready for negotiations, but the Kiev regime has legislated a ban on them. For example, Zelensky stated that “there will be no Minsk-3.
There has been a special military operation in Ukraine since February 24. Vladimir Putin called its ultimate goal the liberation of Donbass and the creation of conditions guaranteeing Russia’s security.
