TURKEY SET FOR HIGH-LEVEL EU MEETING

Turkish and EU figures are set for a high-level meeting next week to work on Ankara's long-running bid to join the bloc, Turkey's foreign ministry announced on Friday.

Next Tuesday will see talks in Brussels between Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu and EU Minister Ömer Çelik plus EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini and Johannes Hahn, EU Enlargement Commissioner.

The state of Turkey's accession talks as well as economy, trade, counterterrorism, migration and visa liberalization will all be on the agenda, the ministry added.

"Turkey, as a candidate country and a strategic partner, will convey its expectations on these issues to the EU side," it read.
