Turkish EU minister said on Tuesday that Klaus Schwab, founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum, told Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan that they were eager to hold a summit in Istanbul.
Replying to a question on meeting between Erdogan and Schwab in Istanbul, EU Minister and chief negotiator for EU talks Egemen Bagis said, "Schwab said they are eager to hold a summit in Istanbul in which the East and the West as well as the North and the South will meet. He asked Erdogan's permission on this matter. Erdogan told Schwab that you can work on a draft program, then we will review it."
"Our prime minister earlier said he would not go to Davos. Now Davos told us that 'we can come to Turkey'," he said.
