Special attention will be paid to the process of militarization of Crimea, human rights violation by the Russian occupation authorities on the peninsula, the dynamics of security situation in the Azov-Black Sea region and the Middle East, opposition to Russian aggression in Donbas, and initiatives for a peaceful settlement in eastern Ukraine.

The foreign ministers will give particular attention to the development of trade and investment between Ukraine and Turkey, deepening cooperation in the energy sector, interaction in security and defense, the prospects for completing the negotiation process on concluding a Free Trade Agreement, and issues of cooperation within the UN, NATO, OSCE, and the Council of Europe.
