"There is no obstacle to extending the export deal. I saw this in the talks I held with (Ukrainian President Volodymyr) Zelenskiy last night and also in the talks I held with (Russian President Vladimir) Putin," NTV cited Erdogan as telling reporters on his plane returning from a trip to Azerbaijan.
