Baku, March 14, AZERTAC
Germany's Chancellor Olaf Scholz is visiting Turkiye on Monday to discuss bilateral relations with President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan for his first visit to the country since he took office, according to DailySabah.
The trip is expected to be dominated by the war in Ukraine. The two leaders will hold talks in the afternoon followed by dinner. Scholz is scheduled to return to Berlin later Monday.
Ankara and Berlin are major trading partners, as Germany has been a top Turkish import and export destination for decades. The two countries also share deep cultural ties due to the 5-million-strong Turkish diaspora in Germany. Turkiye is among the top tourism destinations for Germans. It also hosts thousands of German expatriates.
