WASHINGTON (AA) – Turkey wants to resolve issues with the US, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said Tuesday.

Speaking in an address at the Turkevi Center in New York, Cavusoglu recalled the “important” meeting between President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his US counterpart Joe Biden in Rome, Italy last year.

“We have established a strategic mechanism upon Mr. Biden’s proposal,” said the foreign minister, referring to a diplomatic effort agreed in Rome on Oct. 31, 2021.

Erdogan and Biden agreed to establish a mechanism that promotes high-level dialogue and addresses issues on which Turkey and the US do not fully agree, along with issues they are working on.

“Within the framework of the world, we will discuss crises with the US on which areas we can develop our relations as part of this mechanism,” said Cavusoglu.

During the April 4 visit of US Under Secretary of State Victoria Nuland to Ankara, the Turkey-US Strategic Mechanism was launched. On Wednesday, Cavusoglu will meet with Secretary of State Antony Blinken at the level of foreign ministers.

A meeting at the level of presidents could take place this year, Cavusoglu said.

“I hope, within this mechanism, we can solve or reduce the issues and improve our cooperation by working with a result-oriented approach,” he added.

Turkey-US relations have been strained in recent years due to the latter’s cooperation with the PYD-YPG/PKK terrorist organization in Syria, its stance toward the Fetullah Terrorist Organization (FETO), disagreements over Turkey’s purchase of Russia’s S-400 air defense system and Washington’s sanctions against Turkey.

On Wednesday, Cavusoglu will attend the first-ever International Migration Review Forum within the margins of the UN General Assembly.

He will also attend the Global Food Security Call to Action ministerial meeting to be hosted by Blinken and hold bilateral meetings.
