FM Kuleba: ‘Quadriga’ format to strengthen Turkey’s support for Ukraine in NATO

Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba hopes that “quadriga” format will strengthen Turkey's support for Ukraine's Euro-Atlantic integration.

“My colleagues and I share the common opinion that the ‘quadriga’ mechanism under the leadership of our presidents will become an important driving force not only for Ukraine-Turkey relations but also for the development of the situation in our region in general. Of course, the ‘quadriga’ format will also be useful for Turkey's support for Ukraine's Euro-Atlantic integration,” Kuleba said at a briefing after the first meeting of the ministers of Ukraine and Turkey in the “quadriga” format on December 18, an Ukrinform correspondent reported.

The minister noted that the parties agreed on how the “quadriga” format would function and identified specific topics to be subject of preparation for the next meeting.

On October 16, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky and President of Turkey Recep Tayyip Erdoğan met in Istanbul and signed a number of bilateral documents. In particular, Defense Minister of Ukraine Andriy Taran and National Defense Minister of Turkey Hulusi Akar signed the framework military agreement between the governments of Ukraine and Turkey.

On December 14, the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine concluded first-ever direct foreign economic contacts for military goods. Defense contracts with Turkish companies were signed by Defense Minister Andriy Taran.
