Ukraine (bbabo.net), - Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that the grain deal and the exchange of prisoners "proved the effectiveness of diplomacy in Ukraine." It is reported by TRT News on November 29. Representatives of the world community have a common responsibility for everyone who dies from violence, conflict or famine, the Turkish president said, speaking at the 38th meeting of the Standing Committee on Economic and Trade Cooperation of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation.
Addressing the participants of the event, Erdogan noted that from the first day of the crisis, Ankara has been striving to resolve the contradictions and stop the bloodshed in Ukraine. “Thanks to close friendly relations with the leaders of both countries, we were able to organize various meetings on Ukraine. The grain deal and the exchange of prisoners between the Russian Federation and Ukraine proved the possibility of a diplomatic settlement of differences,” Erdogan stressed.
The politician expressed the hope that the extension of the grain deal from November 19, 2022 for 120 days will help the people of African countries overcome problems in the food sector.
Turkey seeks to convert its regional achievements into recognition of Ankara's global role. The architects of Turkish politics effectively "select" regions with increased turbulence and "gray zones" of geopolitics to actively promote and protect their interests.
