Turkish President Recep Tayyip


said his country is seeking a peaceful resolution to Russia's war against Ukraine "unlike those who favor arms dealers."    

He said this during his last speech, reports Anadolu Agency.

He also emphasized that Turkey will continue to facilitate the shipment of grain to Africa through the Black Sea corridor.

He said that he agreed with Russia on the free supply of grain, which will be processed in Turkey and transferred to countries that are at risk of starvation.

"We will accept the grain for free... we will grind it into flour at Turkish factories and send it to poor African countries. We are determined to transfer these products to African countries through the "grain corridor" and will make all necessary efforts for this," he said.

Erdogan also said he is in constant talks with Russian dictator Vladimir Putin and President Volodymyr Zelensky.

"Turkey is making efforts to achieve world peace. We are making efforts to reconcile them. We continue to follow this path sincerely in the name of world peace," the Turkish leader summed up.

It will be recalled that Erdogan's spokesman

accused Russia of prolonging the war


Ibrahim Kalin, commenting on the negotiations between Ukraine and the Russian Federation, believes that Ukrainians should see concrete steps on the part of the Russians - the withdrawal of troops and the exchange of prisoners - so that they sit down at the negotiating table. 

In early January, Ukrainian President Volodymyr

Zelenskyy had a telephone conversation with Turkish President

Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

The presidents of the two countries discussed, in particular, the situation at the ZANP, the exchange of prisoners mediated by Turkey and the grain agreement.
