Turkey should follow the example of European countries and impose sanctions against Russia, Crimean Tatar leader and member of Ukraine’s parliament Mustafa Jemilev said in an interview with Anadolu Agency Tuesday.
His remarks come as Jemilev arrived to Turkey to meet the President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu.
"Turkey's position is certain. Turkey supports the territorial integrity of Ukraine"- Jemilev noted. We want Turkey to impose sanctions like the European countries did".
In his visit to Ankara Mustafa Jemilev is accompanied with head of Mejlis of Crimean Tatar people Refat Chubarov, Chubarov’s advisor on relations with Turkey Ismet Yuksel, deputy head of Mejlis Ahtem Chiygoz and Crimean Mufti Emirali Ablaev.
The EU and the U.S. have imposed sanctions against Russia because of joining Crimea and its role in the unrest of eastern Ukraine.
