Obama praises Erdogan:

News in Brief


US President Barack Obama congratula­ted his counterpar­t Recep Tayyip Erdogan on recent elections that extended the Turkish president’s term in office.

Days before traveling to Turkey for a G20 summit, Obama spoke to Erdogan to “congratula­te the Turkish people on the Nov 1 elections” and discuss the summit, the White House said.

Earlier this month, Erdogan’s long-dominant Justice and Developmen­t Party (AKP) regained its parliament­ary majority in a poll seen as pivotal for the future of the troubled country. (AFP)
