Turkish President, Japanese PM Discuss Russia-Ukraine War

Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan discussed the Russia-Ukraine war with Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida in a phone call on Tuesday and reiterated Ankara’s diplomatic efforts to reach a ceasefire between the warring countries.

During the telephonic conversation, Erdogan told Kishida that Turkey would continue its efforts to reach a ceasefire and open humanitarian corridors.

The two leaders also discussed bilateral ties between Turkey and Japan and agreed to work on areas of energy, food, agriculture, advanced technology, defense, and the aerospace industry, according to a statement by Turkey’s Directorate of Communications.

Russia invaded Ukraine on February 24, in which hundreds of people were killed and wounded and a million others were displaced.

The international community strongly condemned Russia’s invasion, blaming Russia for waging a cruel, ruthless war against Ukraine’s civilian population. The world also slapped new and immense sanctions on Russia to force Russia to withdraw troops from Ukraine.
