Brussels, 3 April 2013

HRVP Ashton travels to Turkey

Catherine Ashton, High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy/Vice-President of the Commission, visits Turkey today. In Ankara she will meet Prime Minister Tayyip Erdoğan and Foreign Minister Davutoğlu for comprehensive discussions on a broad range of issues, including bilateral relationship between the European Union 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 Catherine Ashton ahead of the visit.

Audio-visual material from the visit will be available on EBS.
