Ukraine–Turkey trade balance has exceeded the pre-pandemic level.

"At today's meeting, we discussed all aspects of our bilateral relations and regional issues. I and Dmytro signed a plan of consultations that will revive our work aimed at the development of bilateral relations and regional issues. This year, our trade balance has exceeded the pre-pandemic level," Minister of Foreign Affairs of Turkey Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu said at a briefing following the talks with Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba in Lviv on October 7, an Ukrinform correspondent reported.

The minister informed that a meeting of the Ukraine-Turkey Intergovernmental Commission on Trade and Economic Cooperation was scheduled for the near future.

In his speech, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Turkey praised the relations between the two countries and thanked the Government of Ukraine for putting out fires in Antalya and neighboring provinces.

"We will never forget this show of solidarity," he said.

Çavuşoğlu also informed that the parties had touched upon consular issues due to the rise in personal contacts of citizens of the two countries in business, investment, and tourism.

Turkey’s foreign minister assured that both countries would make joint efforts to guarantee the observance of rights of Crimean Tatars in sovereign Ukraine. "And we will work on a project to build housing for the Crimean Tatars and will hopefully begin construction this year," Çavuşoğlu said.

In addition, the top Turkish diplomat invited President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky and minister Kuleba to take part in the Antalya Diplomacy Forum scheduled for March.

As reported, the 9th meeting of the Ukraine–Turkey Joint Strategic Planning Group took place in Lviv, in which Minister of Foreign Affairs of Turkey Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu took part at the invitation of Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba.
