“Poland and Turkey should improve cooperation in many fields,” said Grzegorz Schetyna, Poland’s Minister of Foreign Affairs during a visit to Ankara. Afterwards, he participated in a gala with business representatives. He later met with the President of Turkey Recep Erdogan. Grzegorz Schetyna reminded his audience about last year’s 600th anniversary celebrations of diplomatic relations between Poland and Turkey. “Poland and Turkey share a common history. There are many historical similarities between our countries and many areas where our cooperation flourishes. However, there are also fields, in which we wish to improve our cooperation,” Schetyna stated. Poland’s head of diplomacy was accompanied by a group of entrepreneurs and the Minister of Agriculture. The Turkish Minister of Foreign Affairs Mevlut Cavusoglu stated that he is counting on an increase in trade relations. “Like our Turkish colleagues say: we have all the ingredients to make good Halva, so let’s do it.” According to Cavusoglu it would be quite easy to to double trade exchange. Currently this amounts to about $5bn. The Turkish Minister of Foreign Affairs claims that investments are not at a satisfactory level. Grzegorz Schetyna also laid flowers at the Ataturk mausoleum in Ankara, and met the Turkish president.
