Russia supports Turkish attempt to mediate in Ukrainian conflict


Russia supports Turkish attempt to mediate in Ukrainian conflict

Moscow, Jan 19 (Prensa Latina) The Russian presidential spokesman, Dmitri Peskov, expressed today that his country will welcome if the Turkish authorities can encourage Kiev to implement the Minsk agreements for a peaceful solution of the conflict in Ukraine.

The official thus responded to a question from the press about Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s proposal to hold negotiations in that country between his counterparts from Russia, Vladimir Putin, and Ukraine, Vladimir Zelensky.

He noted that the main differences between Moscow and Kiev are related to the obstruction of the process of implementation of the Minsk agreements.

Peskov stressed that it will be welcome if Ankara can influence the Ukrainians and encourage them to fulfill the agreements and commitments made. “Where some contacts will be held is secondary,” he emphasized as reported by TASS news agency.

Spokesman for the Turkish head of state, Ibrahim Kalin, indicated that Erdogan will travel in the coming weeks to Ukraine to negotiate with Zelensky.

The February 2015 Minsk agreements are aimed at the peaceful solution of the conflict in eastern Ukraine and, in addition to ceasefire, provide for the withdrawal of weapons, an amnesty and the restoration of economic ties.
