After supporters of the PKK terror group recently held demonstrations in France and Germany, the Turkish Foreign Ministry on Monday summoned the envoys of both countries to lodge a protest, the top Turkish diplomat said on Tuesday.
Speaking at Anadolu Agency’s Editor’s Desk at the agency’s headquarters in the capital Ankara, Mevlut Cavusoglu said that Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov will be visiting Turkiye with a military delegation on June 8.
Cavusoglu said that a humanitarian corridor for vessels carrying food will be among topics to be discussed during Lavrov’s visit to Turkiye.
He said that there is a possibility of bringing Ukrainian and Russian sides on a negotiating table, even at the leaders’ level as part of Turkiye’s “negotiation efforts.”
On a possible anti-terror operation in northern Syria, the Turkish foreign minister said that his country will “eliminate all terrorist threats at home and abroad – in Syria and wherever it is.”
About the militarization of eastern Aegean islands by Greece, Cavusoglu said Athens violated the status of the islands and called on Athens to demilitarize them “otherwise, a debate on sovereignty will begin.”
To a question about a potential F-16 sale to Turkiye by the US, Cavusoglu said the US Congress is inclined toward providing Turkiye with jets.
He also spoke about relations with Israel and said there should be a fair sharing between Israel and Palestine on a possible Exclusive Economic Zone of Gaza.
