Turkish President To Visit Germany

Turkish President, Recap Tayyip Erdogan will visit Germany on September 27 to end escalation in the relations of the two countries.
The Turkish president on Sunday said following his attendance at the UN General Assembly in New York City, he is to pay an official visit to Germany upon the invitation of his counterpart, Frank-Walter Steinmeier.
Describing his visit as “the first state visit since Turkey switched to a presidential system in June,” Erdoğan said he is also to meet with German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
Underlining that the priority of his visit is to end the tension that has existed between the two countries in recent years, Erdoğan said he would tell his German counterparts to do more to fight against the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) and the Gülen movement.
“I will also receive senior representatives of German companies that are investing in Turkey.
The final day of my visit will be in Cologne, where I will visit the Central Mosque and attend the official opening ceremony,” he added.
