Turkey and Ukraine intent to unite their efforts to return the Crimea, according to the statements of Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Petro Poroshenko at their joint press-conference.
As the Turkish leader said, "Ankara did not recognize illegal annexation of the Crimea and is not going to do it". Russia violated international law, Erdogan believes.
Poroshenko backed his colleague and claimed that "Kiev and Ankara plan to unite their efforts within the framework of international organizations under new international formats, including Geneva+ one, with participation of the Budapest Memorandum guarantors, Turkey and Ukraine".
As a token of goodwill, Poroshenko also invited Turkey to take part in privatization of state property in Ukraine.
