Recep Tayyip Erdogan's office explained why he traveled to Saudi Arabia today and the focus of his trip.
According to media sources, following recent speculation about the Turkish president's visit to Saudi Arabia, Recep Tayyip Erdogan's office officially announced his two-day visit to Riyadh to improve relations between the two countries.
According to Reuters, Erdogan's office announced that he will pay a two-day visit to Saudi Arabia on Thursday (today) and will talk to Saudi officials about relations between the two countries, as well as ways to strengthen cooperation between the two countries.
The Turkish president's visit to Saudi Arabia comes at a time when the media, citing the closing of the trial of the perpetrators of Jamal Khashgechi's assassination in Turkey, has announced that Ankara is stepping up its efforts to improve relations with Riyadh.
Turkey's decision to close the case of the perpetrators of Jamal Khashgechi's assassination in absentia and extradite him to Saudi Arabia provoked strong reactions, with the leader of the main opposition party and rival Recep Tayyip Erdogan making a harsh statement.
