The Turkish president said that the attitude of the leaders of many states towards the situation around Ukraine is far from common sense, as they are more interested in preparing for winter against the background of the energy crisis.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan during the opening ceremony of the new academic year said that the modern world order is experiencing an acute crisis in the last 70 years. According to him, the current system of relations is “bursting at the seams” and the attitude of many world leaders to the war in Ukraine is evidence of this, the Turkish Anadolu agency reports.
The Turkish leader noted that the 21st century has not justified the hopes of mankind for stability and justice, as conflicts have multiplied in recent years, an atmosphere of fear and anxiety has returned, and a number of countries have taken the path of fascism.
He cited the situation around Ukraine as an example and stressed that the leaders of many states are only interested in short-term problems. Against the backdrop of the Russian-Ukrainian war and anti-Russian sanctions, they only care about the coming winter, and this, according to Erdogan, is far from sanity.
“The approaches of many leaders to the war between Russia and Ukraine are far from sanity “They were concerned in Prague only with the topic of the coming winter. I am sure that the topic of the war in Ukraine only temporarily pushed the topic of a radical reform of the global political system. Transformations into inevitable!“, the Turkish leader emphasized.
He also criticized the current world order, in which, against the background of the enrichment of a small group of countries, the level of poverty is inexorably growing.
“The rich get richer, the poor become even more poor. Billions of people – from Africa to Asia – cannot provide themselves with elementary food,” Erdogan said.
Erdogan is convinced that there is every chance to create a fair world order, and above all, it is necessary to pay attention to global food security. According to him, Turkey takes an active part in this, since recently more than 7 million tons of grain have been delivered through the country to the world market.
“Turkey has repeatedly stated in recent years that the world is more than five permanent members of the Security Council UN. We emphasize on all platforms that the plight of humanity is not hopeless. Just imagine that today more than 7 million tons of grain are supplied to the world market through Turkey. Other countries are inactive, while we strive to contribute to global food security, ” Erdogan noted.
