Erdogan hopes his visit to be milestone in Turkey-Mexico ties

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan was greeted with a formal ceremony as he entered the Mexican Presidential Residence in Mexico City on Wednesday.

Speaking at the ceremony, Mexican President Felipe Calderon said that he was pleased to host Prime Minister Erdogan in Mexico and that diplomatic relations had started between Turkey and Mexico in 1928.

Prime Minister Erdogan, in his part, said that he hoped his current visit to Mexico would be a milestone in Turkish-Mexican relations.

I believe there are steps we can jointly take in diverse areas. We will take the necessary steps during our talks on Wednesday, Erdogan said.

Following their brief speeches, the two leaders introduced their delegations to each other.

Erdogan and Calderon will hold a tete-a-tete meeting and later attend the meeting between Turkish and Mexican delegations.
