Erdogan and Guterres "do not approach issues formally, not superficially, but really sincerely empathize and want to solve problems."


At the Lviv summit, no one persuaded Ukraine to make concessions in favour of Russia, there is no betrayal.

This was stated by the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine, Dmytro Kuleba in a video message, which he posted on Facebook.

"No one persuaded us to make concessions in favour of Russia. If some kind of treason spreads again on social networks, then I want to say right away that this did not happen," he stressed.

According to Kuleba, important issues were discussed at a summit today in Lviv with the participation of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, and United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres.

"I suspect that until the end of this war, the solution of many problems through diplomacy will depend on the coordination and decisions of this trio," Kuleba said.

The Minister noted mutual understanding between them, and "this is the main thing."

"They coordinated not just positions but coordinated their actions on key issues - the grain corridor, the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant and, of course, the release of our prisoners. They did not just talk, they agreed on who would do what next," he said.

At the same time, Kuleba added that Erdogan and Guterres "do not formally approach the solution of issues, not superficially, but really sincerely empathize and want to solve problems."

The minister noted that the meeting between Zelensky and Erdogan lasted much longer than expected. Kuleba added that this allowed him to work fruitfully for an hour while attending the Crimean Platform summit.

"There will be a summit, it will be very cool. New summits and new victories are ahead," he stressed.
