Turkey launches diplomacy campaign in US

Turkey aims at creating awareness about Turkey’s policies and theses in a series of panels in the U.S., Presidential Communications Director Fahrettin Altun said in a tweet on May 20.

Altun said his office is launching a three-day campaign of panels on “Turkey-U.S. Relations: Same Origin/New Vision” from May 21 to 24 in line with Turkey’s understanding of effective global diplomacy.

The panels will be held at the U.S. House of Representatives in Washington D.C. and New York’s Harvard Club.

“The panel we organize in D.C., at the U.S. House of Representatives holds special importance since members of the Congress will join. In our panel at Harvard Club in New York, we will host representatives from the academia, political think tanks, civil society and the media,” Altun said.

Turkish Deputy Foreign Minister Yavuz Selim Kıran, Turkish Presidency Security and Foreign Policies Council member Çağrı Erhan and CNN Türk General Director Bora Bayraktar will be among the speakers at the meetings.

The Turkish Presidency Directorate of Communications will also organize fast-breaking iftar dinners, according to the statement.
