Sarkozy to visit G-20 member Turkey

Sarkozy to visit G-20 member Turkey

French President Nicolas Sarkozy, whose country holds the presidency of the Group of 20 rich and developing countries, is to travel to group member Turkey to discuss the financial turmoil as well as Turkey's membership bid in the EU.
Sarkozy has opposed Turkey's full membership in the EU, but his visit Friday comes at a time when Turkey is emerging as a regional power, supported by political stability and a vibrant economy.
The Foreign Ministry says Sarkozy will meet President Abdullah Gul and Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan for discussions covering G-20 issues, Turkey's accession process and the issue of Cyprus.
Turkey says Sarkozy's visit is expected to provide "a basis for further developing the relations between Turkey and France."
