Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Tuesday continued his visit to the United Arab Emirates, a trip that marked a further thaw in relations long strained by the two countries’ approach to Islamist movements following the 2011 Arab Spring.
Erdogan arrived in Abu Dhabi, the capital of the UAE on Monday following a November 2021 visit to Turkey by the country’s de facto leader, Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan.
The Turkish leader visited the Dubai Expo before ending his trip.
The visit was Erdogan’s first visit to the UAE since 2013. [mg/lt]
