According to an UNIAN correspondent, the prime minister said this at the opening the meeting of NATO Foreign Ministers held in Antalya, Turkey, which is being held on Wednesday and Thursday.

"The crisis in Ukraine has demonstrated how fragile the security situation and stability in Europe is. Ukraine should be supported so that it can better ensure the safety of its citizens," Davutoglu said.

He said that was is equally important not to forget about the Crimean people.

 "The illegal annexation of the Crimea cannot be acceptable under any circumstances," Davutoglu said.

According to him, maintaining contacts, providing support to the Crimean Tatars and the prevention of isolation is crucial under the current situation on the peninsula.
