President Erdoğan and Russian counterpart Putin discuss latest developments and bilateral relations


President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan told his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin that, as in the grain agreement, Türkiye could play a facilitating role on the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant in southern Ukraine as well, in a phone call on Saturday.

Erdoğan and Putin discussed the latest developments and bilateral relations, Türkiye's Communications Directorate said in a statement.

The two leaders also exchanged views on regional issues, particularly about developments related to grain exports and the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant in southeastern Ukraine, according to the statement.

Türkiye, the UN, Russia, and Ukraine signed an agreement in Istanbul on July 22 to resume grain exports from three Ukrainian Black Sea ports, which paused after the Russia-Ukraine war that began in February.

Erdoğan also expressed his condolences to Putin on the death of the last Soviet leader, Mikhail Gorbachev.
