Trump confirms Erdogan’s visit to WH next week

Published on :

Washington, Nov 7 (IANS) US President Donald Trump has confirmed that his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan would visit Washington next week, ending the speculation that the latter might call off the trip given the delicate bilateral ties.

Trump tweeted on Wednesday that he had “a very good call” with Erdogan, adding that he looked forward to meeting his Turkish counterpart on November 13 at the White House, reports Xinhua news agency.

“Also talked about their Border with Syria, the eradication of terrorism, the ending of hostilities with the Kurds, and many other topics,” Trump added.

He said that Erdogan informed him that the Islamic State (IS) prisoners that escaped during the recent military conflict in northern Syria had been recaptured.

Erdogan’s upcoming visit to the US comes at a delicate moment of bilateral ties.

The Turkish President recently signaled that he had second thoughts about the planned visit due to measures that the US legislative adopted against Ankara.

The US House of Representatives last week overwhelmingly approved two bills which proved to be highly offending for Ankara.

One officially recognizes the mass killings of Ottoman Armenians during the First World War as genocide and the second was aimed at slapping sanctions on Turkey over its military operations in northern Syria.

US media reported later in the day that the Senate would not take up bipartisan legislation sanctioning Turkey until Erdogan completes the visit.
