Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Friday said that Ankara will continue its efforts for “fair peace” between Russia and Ukraine, APA reports.

"While we continue our solidarity with Ukraine, we will continue to endeavor to end the war with fair peace based on negotiations," Erdogan said at a joint news conference with Ukrainian counterpart Volodymr Zelenskyy in Istanbul.

“Türkiye is ready to host a peace summit in which Russia will also be present," he added.

He said that Türkiye will “strongly” support the reconstruction of the war-torn Ukraine.

Erdogan said the Black Sea Grain Initiative allowed nearly 33 million tons of grain to reach those in need, preventing a global food crisis.

"We are pleased that our bilateral trade remains stable despite the war," he said.

"The entry into force of the free trade agreement (with Ukraine) as soon as possible will undoubtedly give a new impetus to our relations," the Turkish president added.
