In a significant diplomatic engagement, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is set to meet his American counterpart, Joe Biden, at the White House on May 9, as confirmed by a Turkish official to Agence France-Presse (AFP) on Friday. 

This meeting marks the first between the two leaders at the White House, signaling a potentially pivotal moment in U.S.-Turkey relations.

The engagement comes at a time when both nations navigate complex geopolitical landscapes, including regional security issues, economic partnerships, and discussions on democracy and human rights. 

The meeting's agenda is expected to cover a broad spectrum of topics, including NATO's strategic interests, the situation in Syria, and bilateral trade and investment opportunities.

As two pivotal NATO allies, the United States and Turkey have had their share of disagreements in recent years.

However, this upcoming meeting underscores a mutual recognition of the importance of dialogue and cooperation in addressing shared challenges. 

The international community and markets alike will be closely watching this encounter for signals on the future direction of U.S.-Turkey relations.
