Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan will visit Ukraine in one-two months. It may happen that the work on the Agreement on Free Trade Area (FTA) will be completed by then.
Turkey's Ambassador to Ukraine Yönet Can Tezel said this in an exclusive interview with Ukrinform.
"President of Turkey is expected to visit Ukraine in a month or two. It is rather difficult but maybe the negotiations [on FTA Agreement] will be completed by then. Both countries need this agreement and both countries will benefit from it," the diplomat said.
According to him, the visit of the Turkish President is a part of the cooperation mechanism, which is called the High Level Strategic Council.
"Every year the two Presidents pay a visit to each other’s country. Last year Mr.Poroshenko was in Turkey. Two years ago Mr.Erdogan was here. And now the President of Turkey will again come with several ministers, and a lot of issues will be discussed," the ambassador said.
