“We support a peaceful solution to the problems between Ukraine and Russia” said the Turkish National Defense Minister Hulusi Akar, APA reports.
He recalled that the Turkish President has repeatedly announced that he does not recognize the annexation of Crimea: “We always stand by Crimean Tatar Turks. The problems in the Black Sea should be resolved within the framework of the “Regional Property Principle” among inshore countries. This principle should be followed. Currently, we continue our work within the framework of the existing status quo” said the Turkish defense minister.
