President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and U.N. Secretary-General
Antonio Guterres will meet with Ukrainian President Volodymyr
Zelenskyy in Lviv on Aug. 18, Trend reports citing Daily Sabah .
They would discuss the situation at the Zaporizhzhia nuclear
power plant, along with finding a political solution to the
conflict with Russia.
Guterres is also expected to visit the Joint Coordination
Center, formed as part of the historic deal mediated by Türkiye and
the U.N. to oversee the Ukraine grain deal, in Istanbul on Aug. 20
after meeting with Turkish, and Ukrainian presidents.
Three Black Sea ports were unblocked last month under a deal
between Moscow and Kyiv, brokered by the United Nations and
Türkiye, making it possible to send hundreds of thousands of tons
of Ukrainian grain to buyers and bringing relief to some of the
millions worldwide who are on the brink of starvation.
The U.N. and Turkey, a NATO member and maritime neighbor to both
Russia and Ukraine in the Black Sea, have been working for two
months to broker the deal. Turkey controls the straits leading into
the Black Sea and has acted as a mediator on the grain issue.
