Turkey shows willingness to play mediator in Russia-Ukraine border conflict

(MENAFN) Turkey’s president stated on Wednesday, that his country prepared to take the part of a mediator, initiator, or to offer assistance in any needed arrangement to put an end to the Russia-Ukraine row with the agreement of the two countries.

Recep Tayyip Erdogan stated while speaking to reporters when he came back from Qatar that his country’s wish is that "the tension does not increase further and the stability in the region is preserved."

He also mentioned, "we are ready to give our best support to establish a channel of dialogue," and added, "with the consent of both sides, we can offer support in facilitation, mediation, or any other desired format. Of course, we will do our part without hesitation for the peace of the region."

Long-lasting conflicts regarding Russia’s unlawful takeover of Crimea in 2014 have been worsened by Russian-supported separatists in the eastern frontier area of Donbas, as well as a Russian troop buildup condemned by the West.
