Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan flew to Lviv for a trilateral meeting with Volodymyr Zelensky and UN Secretary General António Guterres. This was reported by the TV channel A Haber, which showed footage of the departure of the Turkish leader.
Erdogan arrived at the Esenboga airport in Ankara and boarded the plane for a flight to Lviv.
António Guterres arrived in Lviv the day before. This is his second visit to Ukraine since the beginning of the Russian special operation. At the end of April, he met with President Zelensky in Kyiv.
At the trilateral meeting, it is planned to discuss the situation around the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant and investigate the shelling of the pre-trial detention center in Yelenovka. The parties will also discuss the implementation of the agreement on the export of grain across the Black Sea. Guterres intends to visit one of the ports of Odessa.
In early August, Erdogan met with President Vladimir Putin in Sochi. In addition to bilateral economic relations, the parties also discussed the situation in Ukraine. Erdogan offered Putin to organize his meeting with Zelensky. The Kremlin responded by saying that so far there are no necessary prerequisites for holding a summit meeting between Russia and Ukraine. At the same time, Erdogan's role in organizing several rounds of negotiations is great, said Dmitry Peskov, press secretary of the President of Russia.
