Turkish PM ‘requests appointment with Obama’
Tolga Tanış – WASHINGTON
AP photoPrime Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu has requested an appointment from the White House in order to meet U.S. President Barack Obama during his upcoming official visit to the country next month.
The Turkish Prime Ministry issued its request for an appointment with Obama to the White House around two months ago, according to sources, who said U.S. officials are still evaluating the request.
The latest high-level contact between the two countries was between President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and Obama on March 31 in the White House, during Erdoğan’s trip to Washington to attend the Nuclear Security Summit.
