Turkey won’t take sides in any armed conflicts, Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan told NTV.
“I want to appeal to the nation. Turkey won’t easily take sides in military conflicts. Turkey will always stand for peace, defend it, take steps to strengthen global peace. In fact, that’s what our goal is in the Russian-Ukrainian conflict,” he said in the interview.
Erdogan has repeatedly stated that he is ready to organize talks between the leaders of Russia and Ukraine in Turkey.
