Anwar meets Bilal Erdogan, son of Turkiye president

KUALA LUMPUR: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim held a meeting with Bilal Erdogan, the son of Turkiye President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, on Tuesday (Dec 6).

In a Facebook posting on Wednesday (Dec 7), Anwar said the meeting was held in conjunction with Bilal’s visit to Kuala Lumpur.

"InshaAllah, bilateral ties between both Malaysia and Turkiye will continue to strengthen,” he remarked in his post.

Bilal, a businessman, is the second son of Erdogan.

The Turkiye president was one of the first world leaders to send his congratulations to Anwar after the latter was sworn in as the 10th Prime Minister on Nov 24.

In their 10-minute telephone conversation that day, Anwar expressed his hope for both countries to strengthen ties and cooperation in many fields including trade, business, culture, education, and the military. – Bernama
