ANKARA (QHA) -

Turkey and Ukraine have defined a common position on the repeated cases of Turkish businessmen trading with the Russian-occupied Crimea.

According to the Prosecutor of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea Gyunduz Mamedov, the Turkish government has a definite position regarding the fact that Turkish ships were repeatedly spotted in the ports of the temporarily annexed Crimea.

“The government of the Republic of Turkey has a definite position - that is to ban even transit sea vessels in closed ports of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea. However, no isolated cases were recorded when sea vessels reached the ports of Ukraine, in particular, the Crimea. They provide false documents to the Turkish fiscal services indicating that they allegedly did not stay in closed ports in the Crimea. We have found our common position on this fact. And we made a decision to cooperate very closely with our colleagues," Mamedov stressed.

Earlier, QHA reported that the Ukrainian delegation consisting of the Prosecutor General of Ukraine Yuriy Lutsenko, the leader of the Crimean Tatar people, the Presidential Commissioner of Ukraine for Crimean Tatar People Mustafa Dzhemilev and the Prosecutor of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea Gyunduz Mamedov arrived in the Republic of Turkey to meet with a number of Turkish politicians and representatives of the Crimean Tatar diaspora.
