Turkey to Participate in Ukraine Peace Talks in Malta

Turkey will take part in upcoming peace negotiations to end the Ukraine war, according to President Volodymyr Zelensky.

President Volodymyr Zelensky announced that Turkey will participate in upcoming peace talks to end the Ukraine conflict.

Zelensky’s discussion with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan led to this decision.

Malta to Host Ukraine Peace Talks:

Malta will host a round of Ukraine peace talks on October 28-29, following similar meetings in Jeddah and Copenhagen earlier this year.

The talks in Malta are part of the ongoing international efforts to find a resolution to the conflict.

Turkish Support for the Peace Process:

President Zelensky expressed optimism about Turkey’s involvement, stating it would contribute an authoritative voice to the peace talks.

Turkey has offered mediation services, helping broker a deal in July last year that temporarily allowed safe grain exports via the Black Sea.

Absence of Russia in the Talks:

It’s noteworthy that Russia is not expected to participate in these talks, which Zelensky hopes will garner support for his peace plan.

Similar talks were held in Copenhagen in June and the Saudi city of Jeddah in August, but they did not result in a final declaration.

International Involvement:

Representatives from approximately 40 countries, including China, India, the United States, and Ukraine, participated in the Saudi summit earlier.

The involvement of these nations highlights the global interest in resolving the Ukraine conflict.

Winter Challenges for Russia and Ukraine:

Both Russia and Ukraine are preparing for a challenging winter, with Ukraine warning of potential strikes on its energy infrastructure.

Russia, on the other hand, is attempting to suppress a Ukrainian counteroffensive.

Efforts to Revive the Black Sea Grain Export Deal:

Turkey has been in talks with Russia and Ukraine regarding reviving the grain export deal via the Black Sea.

The original deal collapsed after Russia withdrew its participation less than a year later.
