Trump To Meet With Erdogan in First Official WH Visit
Local Editor

US President Donald Trump will be hosting his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdoğan between May 16 and 17 at the White House, in the first meeting between the two leaders.

Trump To Meet With Erdogan in First Official WH Visit

Trump was recently the only Western leader to congratulate Erdogan on his victory in the country's referendum that broadened his powers.

The only other leaders who made official calls to Erdogan were those of Qatar, Djibouti, Guinea and Hamas.

Relatively, the New York Times reported that Erdogan's slim margin of victory would "cement his autocratic rule over the country."

An independent monitor of the referendum vote, the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe [OSCE], said in a report that "fundamental freedoms essential to a genuinely democratic process were curtailed".

Some felt Trump's call had more to do with the Trump Organization's business ties to Turkey rather than a preference for brash leaders. Trump's family company built the Trump Towers in Istanbul in 2012.

The two leaders meeting will take place just ahead of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization [NATO], a 28-member military alliance, summit later in May. They are both expected to be at the Brussels meeting as well.

Trump admitted that he "said NATO was obsolete. It's no longer obsolete" after speaking with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg in April 2017.
