Erdoğan says he will meet with Trump on May 16-17

President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has said he will meet U.S. President Donald Trump on May 16-17 in what will be the leaders’ first face-to-face meeting since the latter took office in January.

Earlier, Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu said the two leaders had agreed to come together before a NATO summit that will take place in late May in Brussels.

On April 17, U.S. President Donald Trump congratulated Erdoğan in a phone call after he won a narrow referendum on constitutional amendments that replaced a parliamentary system with an executive presidency.
