ANKARA – Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said he believes the “provocative” policies adopted by the West against Russia are incorrect.
This comes after the European Union and G7 nations proposed a price cap on Russian gas.
The Turkish leader made the comments at a joint press conference with his Serbian counterpart in Belgrade, two days after Russian President Vladimir Putin threatened to suspend all supplies if the EU pursued such a step, increasing the risk of rationing in Western winter countries. “There is no need to list names, but I can clearly say that I do not find the position that the West is taking correct. Since there is a West that is conducting a policy based on provocation, it will not be possible to achieve a result there,” Erdogan said. He said other countries should not underestimate Russia against the backdrop of a European Union and G7 proposal for a price limit on Russian gas.
