Erdogan Arrives In Uzbekistan For Talks

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan joined Uzbek leaders in Samarkand, Uzbekistan.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has traveled to Uzbekistan for talks with senior officials.

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan arrived late on November 17 and will meet with acting Uzbek President Shavkat Mirziyaev and other officials on November 18.

Erdogan was also expected to visit the grave of former Uzbek leader Islam Karimov, who died earlier this year after more than 25 years running the country.

Erdogan addressed the parliament of Pakistan on November 17, where he accused the West of facilitating the spread of chaos in the Islamic world. He urged Muslims to cast aside sectarian difference in order to “fight [extremists] together.”
