Putin has become “softer” and “open” – Erdogan again called for negotiations with the Kremlin
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan leaves no hope of organizing a meeting between the presidents of Ukraine and Russia. Moreover, it seems to him that Putin has become more open to them. The defeats at the front became a good basis for this.
The Turkish President said that in the coming days, the Turkish side will hold telephone conversations with both leaders.
I saw that Putin is much softer and more open to negotiations than before. We will see where this can lead in the telephone diplomacy that we will have in the coming days after listening to both leaders. – Erdogan noted.
Feeling defeated, Putin may indeed seek to resume negotiations.
It should be noted that on the eve of Erdogan spoke with Zelensky about the need for a “diplomatic settlement”.
Pay attention! Ukraine officially refused to negotiate with Russia while Putin is its president. This happened after the annexation of 4 Ukrainian regions by Putin.
Are negotiations possible and what is Russia's position
- Advisor to the head of the President's Office Alexei Arestovich said that Putin is eager on the G20 to Zelensky. However, according to Arestovich, he does not represent Volodymyr Zelensky, who goes against his word about not negotiating with Putin.
- The G20 summit will take place on November 15-16 on the Indonesian island of Bali.
- Indonesia is preparing to host the Presidents of Ukraine and Russia, Vladimir Zelensky and Vladimir Putin, at the G20 summit in Indonesia, but neither side has confirmed participation yet.
- The OP was not excluded that Zelensky can attend the G20 summit if Vladimir Putin is there. The Kremlin immediately announced that there would be no meeting.
