Turkey will stand for the rights of Crimea’s residents and the Crimean Tatars, stated Turkish Deputy Foreign Minister Ahmet Yıldız at a conference dedicated to the reforms in Ukraine, Anadolu news agency reports.
Yıldız expressed confidence that despite the tense situation in the Crimea and the Donbas, Ukraine will become stronger. He also emphasized the significance of implementing the Minsk agreements.
“This agreement, despite the discontent over the process of its implementation, still envisages the basic plan to resolve the conflict in Eastern Ukraine, which Turkey supports,” Turkey’s deputy foreign minister noted.
The conference dedicated to Ukrainian reforms is being chaired by British Foreign Minister Boris Johnson and Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin in the historic Lancaster House in London.
