What matters this morning

The agenda items of the Biden-Erdogan meeting become clearer as we approach to June 14. The U.S. National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan announced the details of the U.S. President Joe Biden’s visit to Europe starting on June 10 and answered the questions of journalists at the briefing held by the White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki.

Sullivan made an evaluation on the Biden-Erdogan meeting to take place on June 14 during the NATO Summit in Brussels. “Both leaders will have an expansive and comprehensive agenda in regional issues such as the Eastern Mediterranean, Syria, Iraq, Nagorno-Karabakh,” said the U.S. National Security Advisor. Sullivan also added that the role that Turkey will play in Afghanistan, as the U.S. withdraws from the country, will be the part of the agenda, while the parties will also discuss their ‘significant differences’. “President Biden knows President Erdogan very well and these two figures have spent a good amount of time together. Biden and Erdogan look forward to using the opportunity to review the full breadth of the relationship,” Sullivan noted.
