Speaking to Anadolu Agency (AA) during her visit, Erdoğan recounted her meeting with Zelenska about the evacuation. “I wanted to visit them personally to see how they fare here. Though this is a new place for them, I see they are happy. They are in safe hands thanks to the ministry’s staff and their Ukrainian carers. Of course, we hoped they would not suffer from this war and they would not be forced to leave their home country.
