ISTANBUL, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim is scheduled to meet Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan today before concluding his two-day working visit to Turkiye.

This morning, he is expected to meet Turkish Finance Minister Mehmet Simsek at the Shangrila Hotel here.

Later in the afternoon, Anwar is scheduled to have a meeting with Turkish Foreign Affairs Minister Hakan Fidan and the director of the Turkish National Intelligence Organisation Ibrahim Kalin.

At 3 pm local time (8 pm Malaysian time), the prime minister is scheduled to meet the president, with matters related to the conflict in Gaza to be among the top agenda of discussion.
