Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Çavuşoğlu said his country continues to pursue a constructive policy of developing cooperation and dialogue in all fields as part of Ankara's strategic goal.
This was stated in a letter sent by the Turkish minister on Monday, on the occasion of "Europe Day", which falls on May 9 each year.
"The Day of Europe that we celebrate this year in the shadow of the Ukrainian war, we have once again seen how difficult and valuable it is to maintain peace," Çavuşoğlu said of the event.
The tragedy in Ukraine was a warning to all, he said, noting that what was happening in Ukraine was a reminder of the situation of the European continent in the 1940s.
The Russian-Ukrainian war, which would radically change the security structure established after the Cold War, would also be a turning point for the future of Europe.
Wars, hot conflicts, global uncertainty, climate change, terrorism and irregular migration have a major impact on Europe, he said.
"In addition, the phenomenon of racial discrimination, xenophobia and anti-Islamism contributes to the erosion of the culture of coexistence in the EUROPEAN Union and undermines the shared values on which Europe is built."
As a candidate for EU membership and a NATO ally, Turkey is the central country in resolving all these challenges facing Europe, Cavusoglu said.
"There are some segments within the EU that see Turkey as a competitor or even a threat, but we have made significant contributions and sacrifices to the stability and prosperity of the continent during and after the Cold War."

South Korea's military announced Sunday that North Korea has fired a missile likely to be a ballistic missile designed to be launched from a submarine toward the Sea of Japan.
South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff said in a statement that Pyongyang fired the missile off the eastern port of Sinbo, where North Korea has a submarine-building basin, but did not immediately specify how far the missile had reached.
It was also unclear whether the launch was from an actual submarine or an underwater test platform, the Associated Press reported.
The Japanese Defense Ministry confirmed the launch, without giving any details.
Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida instructed his country's officials to prepare for all "unexpected positions" and ensure the safety of aircraft and ships.
The launch came three days after the South Korean and Japanese armies discovered that North Korea had fired a likely ballistic missile from near its capital, Pyongyang, on Wednesday, three days before the inauguration of South Korean President-elect Yoon Sok-yul, who has pledged to take a tougher approach to North Korea's nuclear ambitions.
On Wednesday, the United Nations called on North Korea to comply fully with Security Council resolutions on its missile programs.
