Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan congratulates Joe Biden for his projected victory in the US election.
The Turkish president extended his congratulations to president-elect Joe Biden on Tuesday, who was projected on November 7 to be the winner of the 2020 presidential election.
President Erdoğan said “I believe that strong cooperation and ties between our countries will continue to provide vital contributions to world peace”
Bilateral ties have become strained over a host of issues, including Turkey’s purchase of Russian S-400 missile defence systems, differences in policy on Syria and the detention of U.S. consulate employees and citizens in Turkey.
But the personal rapport between Erdogan and President Donald Trump have kept relations from deteriorating further.
