NEW YORK 

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan met with his counterparts from several European countries and Africa on Tuesday in New York, where he is attending the 76th session of the UN General Assembly.

Erdogan’s meetings with Croatian President Zoran Milanovic, Slovenian President Borut Pahor and Polish President Andrzej Duda were held at the newly inaugurated Turkevi Center, or Turkish House, across from UN headquarters.

He held another meeting with Guinea-Bissau’s President Umaro Sissoco Embalo at the UN.

The Turkish leader later held meetings with Georgian Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and Finnish President Sauli Niinist at the Turkevi Center.

The meetings were held separately behind closed doors for about half an hour.
