WorldSaudi crown prince to visit Turkey

Ankara (The Times Groupe)- The Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced Friday that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman will visit Turkey on June 22.

After Friday prayers in Istanbul, President Tayyip Erdogan told reporters he will discuss ways to take bilateral relations to a new level with Saudi crown prince Mohammed bin Salman during the official visit to Ankara on June 22.

Mohammed bin Salman will be welcomed by Erdogan at the presidential complex, followed by one-on-one and delegation-level meetings.

To a question about Greek tensions, he replied that Turkey will not hold this year’s High-Level Strategic Council Meeting with Greece, saying Athens, from now on, “should fend for itself.”

Erdogan said he will also attend the White House’s Major Economies Forum on Energy and Climate via video link on Friday.

Political tensions have strained relations between Riyadh and Ankara in recent years, but both nations are now looking to restore them.

King Salman and Erdogan discussed bilateral relations in April and May of last year.

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu met with his Saudi counterpart Faisal bin Farhan Al Saud in July 2021, calling it “a fruitful meeting”.

Ibrahim Kalin, the spokesperson for the Turkish presidential office, announced some positive developments in relations in August.

In addition to Saudi Arabia, Turkey has also been in negotiations with Egypt and the United Arab Emirates to mend ties.
