Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu on Tuesday said that the flow of history in Eurasia could be felt in Kiev.
Addressing around 150 Ukrainian ambassadors serving in various parts of the world in Kiev on Tuesday, Davutoglu said that Kiev was reconstructed for centuries but was able to protect the same spirit.
"Kiev resembles Istanbul. You can not understand the history of Eurasia without understanding Kiev. Those who can not understand Istanbul can not understand the history of the Balkans, the Middle East and Europe," Davutoglu noted.
"The world is now going through a new term and this must be interpreted accurately. Ukraine is one of the most crucial countries in this new era. Certain intellectuals brand Ukraine as a land of war between the east and west and describe Turkey as an indecisive country. Why should we be a land of war between the east and west or be an indecisive country- This is our destiny. This is a gain for us," Davutoglu also said.
