The Turkish president on Thursday met the Crimean Tatar leader and his accompanying delegation in Ukraine’s capital Kyiv.

Recep Tayyip Erdogan's meeting with the delegation led by Mustafa Abdulcemil Kirimoglu, who is also a deputy in Ukraine’s parliament, took place at the Boryspil International Airport.

Turkiye’s Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu, Environment, Urbanization and Climate Change Minister Murat Kurum, Communications Director Fahrettin Altun, and presidential spokesperson Ibrahim Kalin were also present in the meeting.

Crimea's ethnic Tatars have faced persecution since Russia's 2014 takeover of the peninsula.

Turkey and the US, as well as the UN General Assembly view the annexation as illegal./aa
