Erdogan warns of a "second Chernobyl" in Ukraine

Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said the world does not want "another Chernobyl", warning of the possibility of a nuclear accident in Zaporizhzhia if the conflict there continues.

He spoke at a press conference in Lviv, after talks with his Ukrainian counterpart Volodymyr Zelensky and UN chief Antonio Guterres.

Erdogan says the officials also discussed ways to end the war between Russia and Ukraine.

He says they discussed the exchange of prisoners of war between Ukraine and Russia and that he would later raise the issue with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Turkey has recently acted as a mediator between the two countries, including on the issue of unblocking wheat exports from Ukrainian ports.
