Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said on Wednesday he had “constructive” talks with his US counterpart Antony Blinken all aspects of Turkey-US ties, in their first face-to-face meeting since Joe Biden was elected US president.

Blinken and Cavusoglu met at NATO in Brussels and discussed a dispute over Ankara’s purchase of Russian S-400 defence systems, conflicts in Syria and Libya, as well as the situation in the eastern Mediterranean, the Turkish Foreign Ministry said. [Reuters]
