Turkey believes that the recognition of Crimea as part of Ukraine is the basis of any agreement between Kyiv and Moscow. This was stated by the representative of the Turkish President Ibrahim Kalin in an interview with CNN, reports TRT Haber. According to Kalin, Ankara has been following this position since 2014, since the Russian annexation of Crimea.

Yesterday, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan also stated that Ankara considers the return of Crimea to Ukraine necessary to protect the country’s territorial integrity during a speech at the Crimean Platform online summit. He also called ensuring the security and well-being of the Crimean Tatars one of Turkey’s priorities.
