Turkey does not recognize the temporary occupation of Crimea by Russia and clearly states its position.

"We do not recognize and accept the annexation of Crimea by Russia. We say that Ukrainian territorial integrity has to be protected," Head of the Turkish Parliament's Foreign Affairs Committee Akif Çağatay Kılıç said speaking at a TRT World Forum 2021 panel, Turkey’s Grand Strategy: Regional and Global Challenges, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

According to him, Turkey’s position on Crimea is clear, although the country has good relations with both Ukraine and Russia.

As a reminder, Turkey has repeatedly stated at various levels that it does not recognize the temporary occupation of Crimea by Russia and supports Ukraine's territorial integrity and sovereignty. Turkey encouraged Ukraine's initiative to launch the Crimea Platform and became its member. The 9th meeting of the Ukraine–Turkey Joint Strategic Planning Group at the level of the foreign ministers of Ukraine and Turkey took place in Lviv on October 7-8.

TRT World Forum is an annual international forum with the participation of leading politicians, experts, opinion leaders who raise topical issues of international and regional policy.
