Erdogan offers Turkey as venue for Russian-Ukrainian peace summit

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has proposed hosting a Russian-Ukrainian peace summit in Türkiye. He made this statement during a press conference following his meeting with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy in Istanbul.

“We are ready to host a peace summit that will also involve Russia,” Erdogan was quoted as saying by “Interfax-Ukraine.”

Zelenskyy answered that a Russian representative may be invited to the next meeting after the peace roadmap has been discussed and agreed upon by Ukraine and its allies at a peace summit in Switzerland, the date of which has not yet been determined.

“We want to achieve a result. It is a fair peace, fair specifically for Ukraine. So, first, the civilized countries of the world will develop a detailed plan and work towards a result. Only then will they involve representatives from Russia, specifically those who are ready for a just peace,” said Zelenskyy.

Erdogan also emphasized that Türkiye supports “the territorial integrity, sovereignty, and independence of our strategic partner – Ukraine.”
