Turkey, France To Discuss All Aspects Of Relations At NATO Summit

'We will have opportunity to evaluate positive and negative aspects of Turkish French ties': Turkish president.

Turkey and France will have an opportunity to discuss all aspects of bilateral ties at Monday's NATO summit in Brussels, Turkey's president has said.
Recep Tayyip Erdogan told reporters Friday that during a meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron at the summit, they "will have the opportunity to discuss the positive and negative aspects of Turkish-French relations."
Despite a long history of deep-rooted relations, in recent years Turkish-French ties have been strained over such issues as the Eastern Mediterranean and Islamophobic policies in France.
"Turkey is a powerful country, one of the top five NATO countries," Erdogan added.
Besides Macron, Erdogan is also due to meet numerous other world leaders during the summit, including US President Joe Biden, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, and German Chancellor Angela Merkel, he said.
"We will issue a press release after the NATO summit, and then our last meeting will be with Biden," he said.
According to the alliance, the summit is being held to respond to the challenges "of today and tomorrow," including terrorism, cyberattacks, and disruptive technologies, as well as the security implications of climate change.
The NATO 2030 initiative will be at the heart of the summit's agenda.
Visit to Azerbaijan following summit
After the summit, Erdogan will visit Azerbaijan to sign a comprehensive deal in Shusha, the country's cultural capital, said Erdogan.
Erdogan will first visit the city of Fizuli before meeting with Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev in Shusha to ink the deal.
After Azerbaijan, he will attend the Southeast European Countries Summit in the Turkish resort city of Antalya, Erdogan said.
Speaking on the mines planted by Armenia in the Upper Karabakh region, during its decades-long occupation there, he said: "Undoubtedly, when we will discuss the issue of Armenia in the bilateral meetings in Azerbaijan we will also raise the issue of mines".
Turkey will also call for those related to the Armenian-planted mine issue to give the necessary support on this matter to solve it, he added.
In 1991, the Armenian military occupied Nagorno-Karabakh, or Upper Karabakh, internationally recognized as Azerbaijani territory, and seven adjacent regions.
On Sept. 27, 2020, the Armenian army launched attacks on civilians and Azerbaijani forces and went on to violate several humanitarian cease-fire agreements.
During a subsequent 44-day conflict which ended under a deal signed on Nov. 10, Azerbaijan liberated several cities and nearly 300 settlements and villages from Armenian occupation.
Turkey secured significant part of border with Syria
Erdogan underlined that Turkey has "secured a significant part of Syrian areas" close to its border.
"With our determined struggle, we saved Turkey from the attacks of terrorist groups and criminal gangs," said the president. "We will continue to make every effort to ensure that our neighbor Syria has a bright future on the basis of its territorial integrity and political unity."
His remarks came during the opening ceremony of the Kilis Upper Afrin Dam – near the Syrian border – which he attended virtually.
Over the last 19 years, Turkish Justice and Development (AK) Party governments have built 600 dams, 590 hydroelectric power plants, nearly 1,500 irrigation facilities, 262 drinking water facilities, and 21 wastewater facilities, representing an investment of 276 billion liras ($32.4 billion), he said.
"While the world is entering a new phase in water management, as in every other field, we are determined to make the best use of the opportunities we have," said Erdogan. -
