Turkish presidential spokesman Ibrahim Kalin proposed ending the war in Ukraine through three- or five-year negotiations. Earlier, the Turkish Foreign Ministry spoke about the resumption of negotiations.

“Instead of continuing the war, let’s settle on the option of three or five years of peace negotiations. The main thing is to stop the bloodshed. We will discuss the possibilities of advancing the dialogue, taking into account the current situation,” Kalın said in an interview with Anadolu agency

He appealed to the international community and directly to the countries of the West, with a call “to stake on peace, not war.”

“Let’s make every effort to end the war in Ukraine. The continuation of this war and the expansion of its scope is fraught with a global disaster. It is important to stop this war and give preference to diplomacy. Efforts must be made to seat the parties at the negotiating table. We must stake on peace, not war !”, – added the press secretary of Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council Oleksiy Danilov also emphasized that the enemy did not give up the goal of destroying Ukraine, therefore initiatives for a peaceful settlement of the war are inappropriate.
