ANKARA (AA) – The Turkish president and the British prime minister discussed bilateral relations and regional issues, the Turkish Communications Directorate said on Tuesday.
In a statement, the directorate said Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Boris Johnson talked about defense cooperation and the ongoing Russia-Ukraine war.
Amid a looming global food crisis, President Erdogan said a solution must be found for the export of grain from Ukraine.
Tons of Ukrainian grain remain shut in due to the military conflict, causing global shortages and price hikes. Russia, which is accused of using food as a weapon, says Western sanctions are to blame for the food shortages.
