Obama and Erdogan meet on 4 september
U.s. president Barack Obama and his Turkish colleague Recep Tayyip Erdogan will meet on Sunday, september 4, meet.
That has the White House announced Monday. The presidents speak to each other in China, where on 4 and 5 september, the G20 is organized.
The American vice-president Joe Biden was earlier this month in Turkey. He then spoke with the Turkish prime minister Binali Yildirim about the failed coup and the way Turkey has responded to this. Turkey is angry at the US because of American support for Erdogans policy after the coup did not come.
Also about the situation in Syria to sit Turkey and the U.S. is not on one line. America is supporting the Kurdish YPG rebels in the fight against terrorist group, while Turkey and the Kurds at this time understand attacks in Northern Syria.
After the G20 will Obama travel to Laos, where he, in all likelihood, the controversial Philippine president Rodrigo Duterte will meet during a special meeting of leaders from the region.
Many interests at stake after the invasion of Turkey in Syria
