Turkiye believes the West should convince Ukraine to start talks with Russia

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu considers some Western countries are not interested in resolving the Ukrainian crisis, but Ukraine needs to be persuaded to sit down at the negotiating table with Russia, TASS reports


While speaking at the Mediterranean Dialogues conference in Rome, Mevlut Cavusoglu stressed that it is necessary to convince some supporters of the continuation of hostilities that Kiev and Moscow should sit down at the negotiating table. He also admitted that it will be more difficult now to persuade Ukraine to negotiate than it was back in the spring.
