Turkey and the U.S. intend to increase bilateral trade to $100 billion a year. This was announced by Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu in Washington after talks with U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken at the second ministerial meeting of the strategic mechanism.
“We agreed to hold ministerial meetings within the framework of the strategic mechanism at least twice a year. We agreed to develop cooperation in the energy sector. We also set a goal to increase trade between our countries from $34 billion last year to $100 billion a year,” Çavuşoğlu said.
He added that he invited the U.S. secretary of state to visit Turkey and also to participate in an international diplomatic forum in Antalya, which is planned in March.
