UN chief thanks Turkish president over efforts for peace
In a phone call on Sunday, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres discussed regional and global developments, particularly the war between Russia and Ukraine.
"Turkiye is making great efforts to achieve a cease-fire in the Russia-Ukraine war and to re-establish peace. It is also working hard on the issues of humanitarian aid and evacuations," Erdogan told Guterres, according to a Turkish Communications Directorate statement.
While the EU, US, and others have imposed sanctions on Moscow, many companies and global brands have also suspended operations in Russia.
