A Partnership That Delivers
By President Barack Obama
Turkey and the United States have been partners since shortly after the birth of the modern Turkish Republic. As NATO allies, we have defended our common security for more than six decades. And in the United States we are grateful for the many Turkish-Americans who enrich our national life every day.
Today, when I welcome my friend Prime Minister Erdogan back to the White House, we'll chart the next steps in our alliance—a partnership that delivers security, prosperity and progress for both our peoples.
On a personal level, the prime minister's visit will be another opportunity for me to reciprocate the hospitality that he and the Turkish people showed me when I visited Ankara and Istanbul during my first year in office. I came to Turkey during my first overseas trip as president because I am committed to an even deeper relationship with our Turkish friends. Four years later, U.S.-Turkish relations are as strong as ever, and Prime Minister Erdogan's visit will allow us to expand our cooperation in several important areas.
