“President (Erdogan), who is in Kazakhstan’s capital Astana for the 10th Summit of the Organization of Turkic States, met with President Sadyr Japarov of Kyrgyzstan,” the Turkish presidency said on X on Thursday.

During the meeting, Türkiye-Kyrgyzstan relations, the fight against terrorism, regional and global issues as well as the conflict between Israel-Palestine were discussed.

Erdogan highlighted that the international community’s response to Israel’s human rights violations against the people of Gaza is important and that the Organization of Turkic States can contribute to the path to humanitarian ceasefire and peace in the region.

The Turkish presidency later announced that Erdogan also met with Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban.

For global peace and regional stability, and to pave the way for humanitarian aid while enabling an immediate solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, it would be useful to establish a guarantor mechanism with the participation of all relevant actors, Erdogan said.
