Turkish foreign minister to visit China on Wednesday
Bilateral relations as well as current regional, international issues to be discussed during visit, Foreign Ministry says
Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu will pay a visit to China on Wednesday.
In a statement, the Foreign Ministry said Cavusoglu will address "bilateral relations as well as current regional and international issues" during the visit.
Turkiye and the People's Republic of China established diplomatic relations in August 1971.
Bilateral, economic, and political relations between the two countries gained momentum in the 1980s. From the last decade onwards, the relations grew into a strategic cooperation level.
The trade volume between the two countries is around $24 billion as of 2020. This originates primarily from the increasing export volume of Turkish agricultural and husbandry goods to China.
