Turkish Foreign Minister Hakan Fidan met on Tuesday with his Russian counterpart, Sergey Lavrov, in Novgorod, Russia. The discussions covered a range of critical international issues, including the situation in Ukraine, Gaza, and Libya.

The ongoing conflict in Ukraine was a central topic of the meeting. Both ministers exchanged views on the current state of affairs and potential diplomatic solutions to ease tensions and promote peace in the region.

The humanitarian crisis in Gaza also featured prominently in the talks. Fidan and Lavrov discussed ways to support Gaza and alleviate the suffering of its people amidst the ongoing conflict.

The situation in Libya was another important subject. The ministers explored avenues for stabilizing the country and supporting its path towards peace and reconstruction.

Minister Fidan's visit to Novgorod coincides with a ministerial meeting of the BRICS countries. His participation underscores Turkey's interest in engaging with this influential group of emerging economies to discuss global economic and political issues.

Veliki Novgorod, often simply referred to as Novgorod, is one of Russia's oldest and most historically significant cities. Located in the northwest of the country near the Volkhov River and Lake Ilmen, Novgorod has played a crucial role in Russia's political, cultural, and economic history.
