On Tuesday, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan officially greeted his Palestinian counterpart Mahmoud Abbas at the presidential complex in Ankara.
The leaders will meet one-on-one before holding a joint news conference.
According to the Turkish Presidency, Erdogan and Abbas will discuss Turkish-Palestinian relations, the latest developments in the Israel-Palestine conflict, as well as other regional and international concerns.
They will also talk about strategies to improve bilateral collaboration.
Abbas’ three-day visit coincides with Turkey and Israel’s efforts to improve relations, including last week’s decision to reestablish full diplomatic contacts and reassign ambassadors and consuls general after a four-year hiatus.
Ankara, on the other hand, has frequently stated that its position on the Palestine issue would not change, and that it will continue to support the two-state solution to end the decades-long conflict.
