Russia and Turkey should seek common ground and engage in dialogue, says Mikhail Gorbachov, the former USSR President.
“For some reason, I thought trusted persons at the highest level would start looking into the situation to work out an ultimate solution,” said Gorbachov in an interview with RIA Novosti.
Now, Gorbachov is having trouble predicting how the situation will develop.
“It is highly regrettable that things had to turn out this way. It took a lot of effort for the relations to become the way they were in the recent years. It will be a great loss for both Russia and Turkey if the relations between the two countries deteriorate,” Gorbachov said.
When asked whether the situation could lead to the worsening of security in the Middle East, the former USSR President said:
“I think we already have institutions that can stop that from happening. Politicians should feel their responsibility and be aware of the role they can play. I think dialogue is important anyway. What will it be like? Perhaps, there will be no dialogue at all at first. But they should go on trying for that’s the only way,” insists the politician.
Gorbachov is very convincing when he says that compromises and mediation have saved humankind on a number of occasions throughout its political history.
