One mistake made by the interpreter, made Erdogan’s be “Türkiye is in war with Russia!”

During the meeting between the Turkish President, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin, in Sochi, the interpreter missed translate what the Turkish president saying, “There is a war between Russia and Türkiye,” while the Russian president’s facial expression changed after hearing the sentence, as both president were discussing the grain exporting deal across the Black Sea.

According to the official record of the meeting the interpreter made a mistake while translating what Erdogan is saying, as the correct sentence was that apparently, “Türkiye is struggling with Russia”.

At the meeting, Erdogan stressed the need to continue working with the grain shipment agreement across the Black Sea and address its shortcomings, and Erdogan indicated that the alternative proposals put forward for the grain initiative didn’t provide a sustainable and safe model, indicating that Türkiye had prepared with the United Nations a package of new proposals that would make big progress on the grain export deal initiative.

He stressed the need for Ukraine to moderate its approach so that it could take joint steps with Russia regarding the initiative, and stated that Türkiye hosted direct negotiations between Russia and Ukraine and that it is ready again to do what falls under its responsibility, and added, “Putin said that they took the logistical measures in order to send a million tons of Grains are for poor countries, and Türkiye is ready to do what it can do in this regard”.

Erdogan expressed the hope that Türkiye, Russia and Qatar would stand by African countries by taking steps to send grain to them in the form of flour.

He stressed that Türkiye is determined to continue its endeavors for the establishment of lasting peace, stability and prosperity in the region.

He stressed that he and Putin have been in constant dialogue through close telephone contacts since their meeting last year in the Kazakh city of Astana on the sidelines of the Conference on Interaction and Confidence-Building Measures in Asia.
