Turkey does not support any of the parties in the crisis in Ukraine, Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said on Thursday.

“We have good relations with both Russia and Ukraine. We are in favor of solving the problem peacefully and diplomatically,” he said on the air of the NTV channel.

On April 10, following talks with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, Turkish leader Tayyip Erdogan said Turkey was ready to provide the necessary support to resolve the conflict in eastern Ukraine based on the Minsk agreements. Erdogan expressed the hope that the escalation will end as soon as possible.
