President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and his Ukrainian counterpart Volodymyr Zelenskyy discussed developments in the Russia-Ukraine war, and the grain corridor initiative over the phone on Friday, a statement by the Presidency’s Directorate of Communications said.

Erdoğan told Zelenskyy that positive developments in the grain deal and the prisoner swap should be extended to cease-fire negotiations, the statement said.

He also thanked Zelenskyy for his constructive stance on the extension of the Istanbul grain deal.

Meanwhile, in a message he posted on Twitter, Zelenskyy said he thanked Erdoğan for supporting the grain deal and assured him that Kyiv will remain a guarantor of food stability.

He also said they discussed security and energy cooperation.

Earlier this week, an agreement was reached to extend the Black Sea Grain Initiative by 120 days.
