Erdoğan welcomed Tebboune, who started his two-day working visit to Türkiye on Friday, at the Dolmabahçe Palace. The two leaders then had a one-on-one meeting that lasted two hours.
During the meeting, bilateral relations between Türkiye and Algeria and steps that can be taken to improve cooperation between the two countries were discussed. After the meeting of the two leaders, talks were held between the two parties' delegations.
