Top Turkish diplomat meets NATO chief

Should further strengthen unity, solidarity within the Alliance, says Cavusoglu

Turkey’s top diplomat met the chief of NATO in Brussels on Friday. “Should further strengthen unity and solidarity within the Alliance,” Mevlut Cavusoglu said in a Twitter post after meeting Jens Stoltenberg at the NATO headquarters.

“Turkey assumes critical and leading roles in ensuring the Alliance’s deterrence and defense. Will continue to support NATO Missions in Afghanistan and Iraq,” he added.

Cavusoglu, who arrived in Brussels on Wednesday for a two-day visit, is expected to meet Charles Michel, president of the European Council, later today.

The Turkish foreign minister met a number of top officials on Thursday, including EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen and the bloc’s foreign policy chief Josep Borrell.
