Erdogan visits United States
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan will arrive in the US today.
During the visit, which will last until April 2, he will attend the Nuclear Security Summit, which will start on March 31 in Washington. Erdogan is also scheduled to meet with people from the business and scientific sectors to discuss the latest developments in the international arena, trade and investment opportunities.
During the visit, he will also meet with representatives of the Turkish, Muslim and Jewish communities.
In addition, the President of Turkey will take part in the official ceremony of the opening of the Turkish-US Center of culture and civilization in Maryland.
The question about Erdogan's meeting with the US President Barack Obama remains open.
According to the official representative of Turkish President, Ibrahim Kalin, "this is not a bilateral visit". "It is a multi-national, multi-participants summit. Of course, within the framework of such summits there is a place for bilateral meetings. There will be a meeting that we requested, and the meetings that were requested from us. We are now working on ways to hold a bilateral meeting with President Obama," he said.
