In call with Putin, Erdogan calls for common sense, dialog

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan called for Russia and Ukraine to act with common sense and maintain dialog in a call with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin, his office said on Friday.

Erdogan and Putin also discussed peace talks between Russian and Ukrainian officials in Istanbul this week. Erdogan said the "positive and constructive" talks had raised hopes for peace, the Turkish presidency said in a statement.

"Erdogan, who stated that it was important for the sides to act with common sense and maintain dialog, noted he wanted to cap off the peace efforts by bringing together Russian President Putin and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy," it added.
