President Poroshenko and Turkish Premier Ahmet Davutoglu met in Davos in Switzerland during the ongoing World Economic Forum. The officials discussed, first of all, preparations for the forthcoming fifth meeting of Ukraine-Turkey Strategic Council, as well as other bilateral events slated for 2016.
Poroshenko and Davutoglu exchanged views on the occupation of Crimea and part of Donbas. The Turkish Prime Minister confirmed the stable support of his country regarding Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity. The parties agreed that returning the Russian-occupied Crimea to Ukraine will not only restore the official status of the peninsula, but also stop human rights violations by the occupant regime.
The sides also discussed matters related to Russia’s economic aggression against their respective states. “The negotiators said that the restrictions imposed by the Russian Federation are not just groundless, but also they contradict norms of the international law and Russia’s commitments before the WTO”, reads the message at the website of the presidential press service.
