President Recep Tayyip Erdogan departed for Berlin on Friday aboard the private plane "TUR" for a one-day visit to meet with German high-level officials.
During his visit, Erdogan is scheduled to engage in one-on-one and delegation meetings with German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier.
Upon arrival, he will be welcomed by German Chancellor Olaf Scholz at the Chancellery Building, and the two leaders will conduct a joint press conference.
Notably, Erdogan and Scholz last met face-to-face in September at the G20 Leaders' Summit in India.
President Erdogan's visit to Germany, after an almost four-year gap, is expected to encompass discussions on Turkiye-Germany relations, Turkiye-European Union relations, and the Israel-Hamas conflicts in Gaza.
German Deputy Government Spokesperson Christiane Hoffmann highlighted that the primary focus of the meeting would be the Middle East, with additional discussions on NATO and migration issues.
President Erdogan was accompanied by Turkish Foreign Minister Hakan Fidan, Trade Minister Omer Bolat, Presidential Communications Director Fahrettin Altun, Head of the National Intelligence Organisation Ibrahim Kalin, and Akif Cagatay Kilic, Chief Advisor to the President.
