President Barak Obama and Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan are set to hold a “lengthy” meeting in Seoul on Sunday ahead of the Nuclear Security Summit. Turkish daily Hurriyet reported today that Iran will be at the top of the meeting’s agenda. Premier Erdogan will fly to Tehran after the Summit to meet with senior Iranian officials on 28-29 March.
“I expect it to be a comprehensive and lengthy meeting. That’s why it has been fixed not for the sidelines of the summit but a day ahead of it,” an aide to Erdogan said [Hurriyet, 24 March].
