Erdogan says will discuss Turkey-U.S. tensions with Biden
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Tuesday said he will discuss the recent tensions between the U.S. and Turkey with his American counterpart Joe Biden in the upcoming NATO leaders’ summit.
In a late night interview with national broadcaster TRT, Erdogan said "preliminary preparations" have been made ahead of the meeting.
"At the meeting, we will ask why the Turkey-US relations are going through such a tense period," Anadolu Agency cited him as saying.
The Turkish leader recalled he had worked with former American presidents both from Democrats and Republicans, including Barack Obama and Donald Trump, saying he did not "have such a tension with any of them".
The meeting between Erdogan and Biden will take place on the sidelines of the June 14 NATO leaders summit in Brussels, Belgium.
