Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s upcoming visit to Kuwait would be of “great importance” under current circumstances, a Kuwaiti minister said.
Erdogan, who is currently on a visit to Russia, will meet Kuwaiti leaders in the capital Kuwait City on Tuesday.

Regional and international developments as well as bilateral relations between Turkey and the Gulf countries would be discussed in detail, the statement added.
