Turkey's Foreign Ministry has urged Ukraine's government to settle its crisis by opening a dialogue with its opposition, Anadolu Agency reported.

The Ministry issued a statement on Monday, saying that Turkey has been closely and carefully following the incidents in Ukraine; the country's neighbor and strategic partner.

Turkey hopes that Ukraine's government will issue a democratic compromise that will overcome the crisis during the ongoing meetings between the government and opposition.

Anti-government protests broke out in late November, after Ukraine President, Viktor Yanukovych refused to sign a landmark trade agreement with the EU, amid intense pressure from Russia.
