German Chancellor Angela Merkel arrived in Turkey on Friday in a working visit at the invitation of President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.
During the meeting, Merkel and Erdoğan are going to discuss bilateral relations between Turkey and Germany in all their dimensions, according to the statement issued by the Communications Directorate of the Presidency of the Republic.
The meeting will also address steps that can be taken to improve cooperation between the two countries.
In addition to bilateral relations, Turkish-European relations and regional and international issues, especially Libya, Syria, and Afghanistan, will be on the agenda of the talks.
Last week, the chancellor met Pope Francis during a farewell visit to the Vatican and Italy, and they discussed climate change.
She asserted that the response to climate change would require a radical change in how people live.
“Humanity’s response to climate change will require a radical change in our way of living,” she told reporters.
