According to him, the war in the middle of Europe shakes the balance of power in the world and deepens the contradictions between the leading countries.

He noted that today Turkey talks with both the West and the East.

"Turkey is one of the few countries that continues the dialogue with Russia," emphasized the Turkish foreign minister.

Çavuşoğlu said there are factors, especially in the West, who are in favor of continuing the war in Ukraine.

“These players believe that continuing the war will weaken Russia.

However, the truth is that the main damage is being done by Ukraine," he noted and emphasized the importance of resuming the dialogue between Kyiv and Moscow.

"President Erdogan will continue the dialogue with Putin and Zelensky.

Our goal is to organize a meeting of the two leaders to make decisions at the level of heads of state.

The whole world is paying for the consequences of this war," said the Turkish minister.

He stressed the importance of concluding a "just peace".

"The currently occupied lands are the lands of Ukraine," Cavusoglu added.

"Turkey did not recognize the illegal annexation of Crimea from the beginning, which it clearly stated to Russia.

We also do not recognize the results of the referendums on the territory of Ukraine," he added.

According to him, humanity lives in a multipolar world, and there are contradictions not only in Europe, but also in the Asian region, a vivid example of which is the issue of Taiwan.

"Unfortunately, the current international system is unable to meet the challenges of modern times.

Instead of platforms for cooperation, active competition and struggle are taking place," the Turkish foreign minister said.
