Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Friday that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman will visit Turkey on June 22.
He noted that his country (Turkey) will work to develop relations with Saudi Arabia to bring them to the highest levels.
Erdogan’s statements came after Friday prayers in a mosque in Istanbul, where he made it clear to journalists that he would meet with the Saudi crown prince in the presidential complex in Ankara, according to the Turkish “Anatolia” agency.
A senior Turkish official told AFP that “several agreements will be signed during this visit.”
Erdogan visited Saudi Arabia in late April, accompanied by a high-level delegation, after months of Ankara’s efforts to rapprochement and repair relations with Riyadh, as relations between the two countries have declined since 2017.
Erdogan described his recent visit to the Kingdom as “successful”, stressing that his country is working to strengthen relations with Saudi Arabia, and that “the security and stability of the Gulf is part of Turkey’s security and stability.”
He indicated that he agreed with Saudi Arabia to reactivate the economic potential between them through events that bring together investors of the two countries, noting that his country will open a “new page in relations” with Saudi Arabia and that he hopes his visit will strengthen “relations based on mutual respect and trust.”
During the past months, the Turkish president and his foreign minister made several statements, expressing their desire to “reform relations with the kingdom”.
