United States-Turkey Strategic Dialogue

United States-Turkey Strategic Dialogue

As part of the strategic dialogue between the United States and Turkey, the Department of State and an interagency team led by Deputy Assistant Secretary for European and Eurasian Affairs, Ambasador Laura Kennedy, hosted today, February 23, the Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ Director General for Bilateral Affairs, Ambassador Halil Akinci, to discuss Eurasian issues. The bilateral meetings provided a forum for us to discuss common interests and explore ideas for greater collaboration on issues including, inter alia, the resolution of frozen conflicts in the region, energy, and political and economic reform.

The Turkish delegation invited the United States side to come to Turkey for the next session of what our two countries agree should become a permanent consultative forum.
