Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Jens Stoltenberg discuss regional, global issues, including Black Sea grain deal and Sweden’s NATO membership
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan met with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg at the Turkish House (or Turkevi Center) in New York on Monday and discussed regional and global issues.
“As always, we will continue to be one of the countries that gives the most active support to NATO missions,” Erdogan wrote on X, the social media platform formerly known as Twitter, shortly after the meeting, which lasted nearly 50 minutes.
Stoltenberg thanked President Erdogan for Türkiye’s work to revive the Black Sea grain deal.
“As agreed at (the July NATO summit in) Vilnius, (Lithuania), the Turkish parliament will take up Sweden’s NATO membership as soon as possible,” Stoltenberg wrote on X shortly after the meeting, which took place on the sidelines of the 78th United Nations General Assembly.
