According to the Turkish leader, Scholz agreed with Erdogan's opinion on the importance of high diplomacy in resolving the situation in Ukraine and noted the importance of dialogue.
On November 2, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan had a telephone conversation with German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, during which, in particular, they discussed diplomatic relations between Germany and Russia. After the conversation, the Turkish leader said that Scholz had changed his position on Russia and was seeking to find a common language with President Vladimir Putin. This is reported by the Turkish news agency “Anadolu”.
Erdogan spoke about a recent telephone conversation with Putin, after which he concluded that the Russian president is “not the one to take a step back” if you go against him. In this context, the Turkish leader noted the importance of personal relations for the implementation of the most important steps in diplomacy.
“We spoke about the importance of personal relations with Mr. Putin yesterday,” Erdogan said during a live interview.
According to him, during the discussion with the German Chancellor of the situation in the Russian-Ukrainian war, it was emphasized that high diplomacy is crucial for solving problems of this magnitude.
“Even German Chancellor Scholz a month ago had completely different position towards Putin and now changed it towards Russia, noting the importance of dialogue,” Erdogan said.
Note that in late October, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov complained that Putin more often communicates with Erdogan than with Chancellor Scholz and French President Emmanuel Macron. According to the speaker of the Russian president, Macron and Scholl have recently shown no desire to somehow listen to the position of the Russian side, so there have been fewer contacts.
