16 August 2018

Turkey is ready to discuss issues with the United States as long as there are no threats amid a widening dispute between the NATO allies that has sent the Turkish currency plunging. Cavusoglu also said Turkey's relations with the European Union were on a firmer basis and normalising once again. He said he would meet with the European Commission's deputy head Frans Timmermans to speed up talks on visa liberalisation for Turks.
