US Vice President Joe Biden arrives in Turkey today. He will hold talks with the country’s top leadership. Biden's visit takes place against the backdrop of a serious deterioration in relations between the two countries in recent years.
On the agenda are the issues of Turkey’s military operation in Syria, Turkey's membership in NATO, and the issue of Fethullah Gülen, who created a network of influence controlled by the CIA that was involved in the attempted coup on July 15th, 2016.
President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev arrived today on an official visit to Turkey. In Ankara, Nazarbayev will meet with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and negotiations will be held in an extended format. This is the first visit by the head of a foreign state to the Republic of Turkey since the failed pro-US coup on the night of July 15th-16th.
