White House: Biden is willing to meet with Erdogan

AA / Washington

US President Joe Biden is set for a meeting with his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan on his next trip to Europe, White House Spokeswoman Jen Psaki told reporters at the White House on Tuesday. .

Jen Psaki added, however, that nothing has been finalized and that US National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan will be making a more detailed statement on Biden’s agenda in the coming days.

“We have space on the agenda, and we are working to schedule additional bilateral meetings,” she said.

Jen Psaki stressed that relations between the two countries remain in good shape.

“Turkey remains an important ally of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and a country with which we work in many areas,” she insisted.

Joe Biden will travel to Italy on Thursday. He will meet with Pope Francis on Friday at the Vatican, and will then participate in the summit of G20 heads of state scheduled for Saturday, October 30 in Rome.

He will fly to Glasgow, Scotland next week to take part in the World Leaders Climate Summit on November 1-2.

The President of the Republic of Turkey, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, will also participate in these two events.

The US President met his Turkish counterpart last June during his first trip abroad.
