Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu on Wednesday hosted Ukraine’s first deputy foreign minister Emine Dzheppar.

In a Twitter post, Cavusoglu said he hosted Emine Dzheppar on her first visit to Turkey as the Ukraine’s first deputy foreign minister and discussed bilateral relations and regional issues.

He said Turkey welcomes Ukraine’s support for Azerbaijan’s territorial integrity, adding: “As a staunch advocate of the Crimean cause, Turkey will always stand by the Crimean Tatars.”

Dzheppar, for her part, stressed she was pleased to discuss strategic cooperation and regional issues with Cavusoglu, adding Turkey is a “strategic partner”.

“Turkey is our strategic partner who supports us by concrete deeds, will never recognise occupation of Crimea and is ready to stand by Ukraine and our initiatives,” first deputy foreign minister of Ukraine Emine Dzheppar has said.
