Turkey dissociates itself from EU and Western sanctions on Russia

Turkey dissociates itself from EU and Western sanctions on Russia

Ankara, May 31 (Prensa Latina) Turkey on Tuesday dissociated itself from the sanctions imposed on Russia by the European Union (EU) and several Western nations, as well as from the possibility that they are implemented through it.

Foreign Minister Mavlut Cavusoglu made this statements to Anadolu agency, and added that the regulations so far implemented against Russia also affected Ankara.

Our position is understandable given the mediation role we have assumed, the minister said.

It was also reported on Tuesday that Çavusoglu will receive his Russian counterpart, Sergei Lavrov, in Ankara on June 8, with an agenda focused on food exports from the Black Sea.

In a recent telephone conversation, Russian President Vladimir Putin expressed to his Turkish counterpart, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, his willingness to facilitate maritime transportation of goods through the above-mentioned sea route.

Sources from both countries noted that at the forthcoming meeting, Cavusoglu and Lavrov will also address other bilateral and regional issues.

On Monday, the European Council agreed that the sixth package of sanctions on Russia since late February will include Russia’s crude oil and oil products exported to the member States, with a temporary exemption for crude oil supplied by pipeline.
