Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who has good relations with Donald Trump, sent a congratulatory message to Joe Biden on Tuesday, expressing his hope for a strengthening of Ankara’s relations with Washington.
“The challenges we face on a global and regional scale make it necessary to develop and strengthen our relations on the basis of shared interest and common values,” Erdogan said in a message published by the Turkish presidency.
“In this new period, I reiterate my determination to work closely with the US administration in this regard,” he added, calling Turkey’s relationship with the United States “old” and “strategic.”
The Turkish president then sent a message to his American counterpart Donald Trump, thanking him for his “warm friendship”.
“Thank you for your sincere and determined vision that has allowed the development of relations between Turkey and the United States,” and “for your warm friendship,” Erdogan wrote to Trump.
In this message, the Turkish head of state carefully avoids evoking Trump’s defeat in the US presidential election on November 3, which refuses to admit it and denounces electoral fraud without presenting evidence.
