Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu discussed bilateral relations with his Indonesian and Turkish Cypriot counterparts on the sidelines of the 76th session of the U.N. General Assembly.
He noted that he had a productive meeting with Indonesian Foreign Minister Retno Marsudi.
"We will further strengthen our bilateral relations in every field," he said, highlighting the "close cooperation" of Turkey and Indonesia at the U.N., Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), D-8, Organization for Economic Cooperation (OECD), and MIKTA, an informal partnership consisting of Mexico, Indonesia, South Korea, Turkey, and Australia.
Çavuşoğlu also met with his Turkish Cypriot counterpart Tahsin Ertuğruloğlu.
