Catherine Ashton, EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, visits Turkey today.
In Ankara she will meet Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan and Foreign Minister Davutoglu for discussions on bilateral relationship between the EU and Turkey as well as a number of foreign policy issues.
“I am very much looking forward to the meetings with the Prime Minister and Foreign Minister. Turkey is a key partner of the EU in the region, especially when dealing with difficult foreign policy challenges like the crisis in Syria. I also believe that this year we have a chance to build momentum on Turkey’s EU track,” said Ashton ahead of the visit.
