Recep Tayyip Erdogan assures that Putin wants to end the war “as soon as possible”

The Ukraine war could be coming to an end. This is at least what the president of Turkey hints at, Recep Tayyip Erdoganwho during a televised interview confirmed that after several encounters with Vladimir Putin understands that he wants to end the conflict as soon as possible. The invasion of Ukraine turns seven months old this week.

“The most important thing is that the Russian attitude will be very, very important here,” Erdogan explained. “In Uzbekistan, I met with President Putin and we had extensive talks. And, in fact, He is showing me that he is willing to end this as soon as possible.”.

“That was my impression,” Erdogan continued, “because the way things are developing now is quite problematic; 200 hostages will be exchanged after an agreement between the parties. I think an important step will be taken.”

Erdogan also addressed the controversial issue about his opposition to the admission of Sweden and Finland to NATO, especially accusing Sweden, once again, of of harboring terrorists on its territoryreferring to the Kurdistan Workers’ Party.

Turkey’s veto was finally lifted last June, after the Nordic countries agreed to sign an extradition agreement for several of those members considered terrorists.
