Turkish Foreign Minister Hakan Fidan on Monday held talks with US Under Secretary of State John Bass, the Turkish Foreign Ministry said.

The ministry did not share further information about the closed-door meeting held in the capital Ankara with Bass, who in 2014 to 2017 served as US ambassador to Türkiye.

Bass is on a two-day visit to Türkiye at the invitation of Turkish Deputy Foreign Minister Burak Akcapar to discuss bilateral and global issues.

During his visit, Bass will meet senior Turkish government officials to “build on the momentum of the successful March 7-8 meeting of the U.S.-Türkiye Strategic Mechanism in Washington," according to a State Department statement released last week.

The humanitarian crisis in the Gaza Strip, the Ukraine war, and preparations for the upcoming NATO summit in Washington will also be on the agenda.
