Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu visited Poland on Tuesday to attend a conference for ambassadors and have bilateral talks with his Polish counterpart, Radoslaw Sikorski.
A statement issued by the Foreign Ministry on Monday noted that Davutoğlu's visit is significant as it coincides with the 90th anniversary of a treaty of friendship that the two countries signed on July 23, 1923.
The statement said that Davutoğlu will deliver a speech on Turkish-Polish relations at the annual meeting of the ambassadors in Poland.
During a tête-à-tête meeting, Davutoğlu and Sikorski were expected to discuss Turkey's EU membership bid and issues related to Cyprus as well as exchange views on developments in Egypt and Syria.
The statement mentioned that Turkey and Poland signed a "Declaration of Will" in March for activities to mark the 600th year of diplomatic relations in 2014 and said that Tuesday's visit was particularly significant as it will contribute to ties. As part of the "Declaration of Will," Turkey and Poland will hold various events in 2014, including exhibitions, concerts and cultural and social activities.Last Mod: 23 Temmuz 2013, 11:11
