Erdoğan signals possible meeting with Trump in Paris

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said on Saturday that he might meet U.S. President Donald Trump if they have opportunity in Paris during the commemorations to mark the 100th anniversary of the end of World War One.

Erdoğan will pay an official visit to France on Nov. 10-11, the presidential press office said on Friday. His visit comes at the invitation of French President Emmanuel Macron, said the statement.

During his visit, Erdoğan will attend Armistice Day commemorations. The ceremonies — to be hosted by Macron in Paris — will also see the attendance of nearly 100 world leaders, including U.S. President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Nov. 11 Armistice Day marks the 1918 end of World War between the Allies and their opponent, Germany, on land, sea, and air.
