Türkiye is ready to again host peace negotiations between Russia and Ukraine, the Turkish president said on Wednesday, APA reports quoting Anadolu Agency.

In a video message sent to the Ukraine-Southeast Europe Summit, Recep Tayyip Erdogan said he maintains his view that diplomacy and dialogue should be given a chance for a “fair and lasting resolution” of the Ukraine war.

“I’m of the opinion that joint efforts should be initiated, at least on determining general parameters of peace,” he said.

The president said Türkiye “in principle” supports Ukrainian President Zelenskyy's 10-step peace formula, and is ready to contribute to "swift recovery and reconstruction" of the war-torn country.
