Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu met on Sunday with Iraq's fugitive Sunni vice-president, Tariq al-Hashemi, who arrived in the Turkish capital, Ankara, after an Iraqi court sentenced him in absentia to death on the charges of plotting terrorist attacks back in his country.

Hashemi told reporters that the meeting with the Turkish FM was planned earlier, adding that they discussed "issues of bilateral and joint interest."

Turkish diplomatic sources have said Davutoglu and Hashemi also discussed the death penalty on the Iraqi vice president.

Hashemi is set to appear before reporters in a press meeting on Monday in Ankara.
