Turkey’s Foreign Minister concerned about Third World War

Turkish Foreign Minister Hakan Fidan believes there is a risk of military conflicts in Gaza and Ukraine escalating into ” “Third World War”, announced the electronic edition of the Turkish newspapers.

Asked if a “World War Three” could break out, Fidan said on Haberturk TV on Wednesday night: “I think the world has to take this scenario seriously, it has to take this threat seriously. There is such a risk. We’ve been saying this since the beginning”.


Today, at a joint press conference with his Czech counterpart Jan Lipavsky in Ankara, Fidan said that the risk of the wars spreading is increasing.

Speaking of the war between Ukraine and Russia, the Turkish minister stated that “the problem can be resolved not by war, but by dialogue”. “There is a need for peace and tranquility in our region. Otherwise, the risk of wars spreading increases. Countries are preparing their societies and infrastructures for war,” he added.


The continuation of the armed conflicts in Ukraine and Gaza risks turning into a regional and global war, the Turkish top diplomat has warned, calling on the international community to shoulder responsibility for an immediate ceasefire in both conflict theaters.


“There is a risk of spreading the war [between Russia and Ukraine] as well as the use of weapons of mass destruction. It’s been two and a half years, and this war must end. Our region needs peace and comfort,” Foreign Minister Hakan Fidan told a joint press conference with visiting Czech Foreign Minister Jan Lipavsky on June 25 in the capital Ankara.

Repeating Türkiye’s unwavering support for the territorial integrity of Ukraine and denunciation of its occupation by Russia, the minister said, “However, this war is growing beyond Russia and Ukraine. The hot war is not may be spread to other territories, but global risks are growing. There is a deeper division in the world.”
