Europe

-

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has arrived in Britain two days before meetings with Queen Elizabeth II and Prime Minister Theresa May.

Before leaving Istanbul for London on Sunday, Erdogan called the UK a “strategic partner and ally” and said he would be discussing bilateral, regional and internatio­nal issues with May on Tuesday. They include the latest developmen­ts in Cyprus, where Turkey and Britain act as guarantors, and a “joint action plan” in the Middle East, especially in Syria, Iraq and Iran.

Erdogan said his three-day visit would also focus on increasing Turkey-Britain trade.

He said that “we want to continue our economic relations as the government­s of Turkey and the United Kingdom without interrupti­ons after Brexit.”

Erdogan will also be speaking at think tank Chatham House and meeting investors. (AP)
