Erdogan stressed that the issues on which they agreed should be maintained. This will benefit both parties.

Erdogan also told Putin that there should be talks between the two leaders.

In a statement, the president’s office said President Erdogan had told Putin the importance of a ceasefire, working properly on humanitarian corridors and bringing out those trapped safely.

President Erdogan also told Putin that Turkey would do everything possible to end the conflict, which is hurting everyone. Turkey will also work to maintain long-term peace.
