Erdogan praises United Kingdom as 'real friend' during official visit

'Strong Tehran means strong Ankara': Turkey vows to maintain trade with Iran

In efforts to preserve close ties, Britain has been largely silent on the erosion of rights and rule of law in Turkey under President Erdogan.

Turkish presidential elections are set to take place on June 24, with incumbent Erdogan the favourite to win.

The Turkish leader will also meet business investors during the visit and speak at the Chatham House think tank.

Cooperation between Turkey and the U.K.in the fight against terrorism is at a much more advanced stage than mechanisms we have with other partners, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Sunday. Meetings with Queen Elizabeth II and Prime Minister Theresa May are planned within the framework of the visit.

Speaking at a forum on Turkish-British relations, Erdogan noted that in July 2016, the British government quickly condemned a coup attempt against him and said "we will never forget this solidarity".

Australia's Q1 wages growth disappoints, bolsters lower-for-longer rates view
Annual wage growth in the private sector stayed stuck at 1.9 per cent with not a single industry paying more than 2.8 per cent. It still sees official interest rates moving higher, just not until the June quarter next year .

Turkey attaches special importance to cooperation with Great Britain, he said at a briefing before his flight to London.

The deepening ties are most evident in trade, Erdogan said, with a joint goal of increasing trade volume from $16 billion to $20 billion and a potential free trade agreement in the works.

In order to highlight the potential of the strong Turkish-British partnership, Erdoğan referred to TAI's TF-X project and said, "The TF-X national fighter jet project proves what Turkey and the United Kingdom can accomplish in partnership".

TRT World's Simon McGregor Wood explains what both sides are hoping to get out of the visit.
