Biden Says “Very Good’ Talks With Turk President

BRUSSELS — President Joe Biden says he had a “very good meeting” with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan on the sidelines of the NATO summit in Brussels.

Biden’s brief comment came after he and Erdogan met privately on Monday before being joined by other officials.

The two leaders spent in total more than an hour together.

Biden was expected to raise a range of issues with Erdogan, including Afghanistan, Syria and Turkey’s purchase of advanced Russian missile systems which has complicated Washington's relations with Ankara.
