Turkey's Erdogan says to meet Obama at next G-20 Summit

Turkish Premier Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Wednesday that he will meet the U.S. President Barack Obama at the upcoming G-20 Summit in London in April.

Erdogan and his Croatian counterpart Ivo Sanader held a joint press conference and answered questions of the press corps following their tete-a-tete meeting in Ankara on Wednesday.

Turkey and Croatia signed four agreements on economy, foreign trade, investments and environment. The two countries also signed a "Strategic Document" on Wednesday.

Croatia is a country which Turkey attaches great importance for peace, stability and welfare in the Balkans, Erdogan said.

"Political relations between Turkey and Croatia are excellent," Erdogan said.

We had a chance to exchange view points on regional and international issues, Erdogan said.

We discussed Croatia's membership to NATO and how this membership will add a new dimension to bilateral relations, Erdogan said.

Reminding the EU accession negotiations of the two countries, Erdogan said that both Turkey and Croatia have similar approaches to the EU, Erdogan said.

A business council meeting between Turkey and Croatia would take place in Istanbul tomorrow (Thursday), Erdogan said.

The strategic document signed on Wednesday will strengthen the multi-dimensional relationship between our two countries, Erdogan said.

In response to a question of a Croatian journalist on Caspian Sea natural gas, Erdogan said that Caspian natural gas may be carried to Albania, Croatia, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Montenegro.
