The former head of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar People, Mustafa Jemilev, is not disclosing an agreement with Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan after their last meeting, but assures they are preparing a surprise for Crimea, Ukrinform reports.
He said this at a news conference at the Ukraine Crisis Media Center in Kyiv on Saturday.
"Indeed, we discussed the situation, for Turkey cares about the fate of Crimea not only historically - 10 times more Crimean Tatars are living in its territory, than in the peninsula. But I will tell nothing about the agreements reached - let it be a surprise "- Jemilev said.
He added that Erdogan had a conversation with Russian President Vladimir Putin, during which the latter said Turkey was closely following the situation in Crimea and the Turkish people would not allow the country's leadership to remain in the role of a mere observer.
