President Erdogan expected in Lomé on October 20

(Togo First) - President Recep Erdogan from Turkey should be in Lomé on Oct. 20, 2021, for an official visit. The news was disclosed by TVNET, a Turkish media. 

According to the same source, the leader, who will meet President Gnassingbe, will first be in Angola (October 17), and Nigeria (October 18).

President Erdogan’s trip to Togo is announced at a time when Lomé and Ankara want to boost their cooperation, economically notably. Last August, 13th, President Erdogan and President Gnassingbe, several media reported, had a phone call to discuss regional and bilateral issues.

At the time, Erdogan had also hinted at strengthening cooperation between the two countries, especially in the field of defense. Partnership agreements are thus expected to be signed during his visit -the first- to Lomé.

President Erdogan comes after several trips to Ankara by Togolese officials, including Togo’s foreign affairs minister, Robert Dussey, and the minister of security, Yark Damehane. 

Last April, Turkey opened an embassy in Togo.
