EU To Hold Istanbul Summit Over Russia-Ukraine War

The European Union is planning to hold a summit in Istanbul on Feb. 22 on the occasion of the anniversary of the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

The head of the EU delegation in Turkey, Nikolaus Meyer-Landrut said on Monday that a Ukrainian government official would be invited while a Turkish representative would also be present at the summit.

Nikolaus Meyer-Landrut said in a statement; "This is also a way of expressing our support for Ukraine. Last year, February 24, the start of Russian aggression was a defining moment in European history.

"People often say that 9/11 was a moment of change for American security history. I would say there is a similar important European security situation on Feb. 24, 2022.

"We have a war on our continent, a great brutal war, a war with consequences far beyond the European continent."

Turkey has been one of the most active countries working to ensure a permanent cease-fire between Ukraine and Russia.

Its role as a mediator for both warring sides has won widespread appreciation for its push to end the war.
