Yermak, chief adviser to Turkey’s President discuss situation at Zaporizhzhia NPP

As part of his visit to Turkey, Head of the Office of the President of Ukraine Andriy Yermak held a meeting with chief adviser to the President of the Republic of Turkey İbrahim Kalın, during which the situation at the Zaporizhzhia NPP was discussed.

“The parties discussed the situation at the Zaporizhzhia NPP. The Turkish side expressed its readiness to contribute to international efforts to prevent a nuclear threat,” the press service of the President’s Office informs.

Yermak thanked the Turkish side for their active participation in the recent release of 215 Ukrainian servicemen from Russian captivity and expressed hope for Ankara's further assistance in this matter.

During the meeting, Turkey's key role in organizing the operation of the grain initiative and establishing the export of Ukrainian foodstuffs through the Black Sea was pointed out.

It was noted that since its start, more than 250 ships with over 5.7 million tonnes of foodstuffs sailing to the countries of Asia, Europe and Africa have left Ukrainian ports. Hope for the further smooth functioning of the grain initiative to prevent a global food crisis was expressed.

The Head of the President’s Office emphasized the importance of a tough reaction to Russia's holding of so-called referendums on the temporarily occupied Ukrainian territories and the adoption of an illegal decision on their annexation, as well as the importance of Ukraine receiving reliable international security guarantees, in particular, even before joining NATO.

Yermak thanked the Turkish side for its principled position in supporting the territorial integrity, independence and sovereignty of Ukraine and for its consistent position on non-recognition of illegal referendums.

The parties also discussed the situation at the front, specific issues of Ukrainian-Turkish defense cooperation and support of national initiatives within international organizations.
