Arms sales to Ukraine: ‘A sensitive policy is hard to understand’
Türkiye acts as an important mediator between Russia and Ukraine. In this process, important meetings were hosted and relations with both countries are carried out on an equal basis. However, some defense industry companies from Turkey continue to sell various systems and weapons to Ukraine. Evaluations are made that this situation puts Turkey’s neutrality at risk.
AK Party’s Conkar,In his assessment of this issue, “Türkiye has to protect its own security and national interests first. In this process, we are uncomfortable with the conflict of our two neighbors. This affects us negatively, but we can take steps with both Russia and Ukraine in line with our own national interests while maintaining these relations. For example, we have a nuclear power plant project with Russia, and we continue to attach great importance to it. For example, we have a defense industry cooperation with Ukraine, and we do not want it to deteriorate and negatively affect Turkey.”he added:
