ISTANBUL — Turkey’s Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu says talks between Russia and Ukraine in Istanbul marked the “most significant progress” since war broke out between the two countries.

Speaking after three hours of talks between delegations from both Moscow and Kyiv, Cavusoglu says the discussions represented “the most significant progress since negotiations began” following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

Talks would not resume on Wednesday, he adds.
