Nato Secretary-General visiting Turkey after coup attempt

NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg is paying a two-day visit to Ankara on Sept. 8 and 9 to both show the alliance’s support and solidarity with Turkey following the defeated coup attempt on July 15 and to discuss developments in Syria, after the Turkish army launched an incursion into its southern neighbour to fight against jihadists.

This will be Stoltenberg’s first visit to the Turkish capital since the coup.

The NATO chief will meet with President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Prime Minister Binali Yildirim, Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu and Defense Minister Fikri Isik along with other high-level Turkish officials.
