Türkiye’s Treasury and Finance Minister Nureddin Nebati met with Saudi Arabian Trade Minister Majid bin Abdullah Al Qasabi in Istanbul on Sunday and discussed bilateral relations.
Nebati, in a Twitter post, said the meeting with the Saudi trade minister was very productive.
“During our meeting, we evaluated economic, commercial and financial cooperation between our countries,” Nebati noted.
“We agreed with the minister to further develop our cooperation in these areas,” he added.
Türkiye and Saudi Arabia have this year moved to mend ties following years of tension, which escalated especially after the 2018 murder of dissident Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi in Saudi Arabia’s Istanbul Consulate.
President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan visited Saudi Arabia in April, the first high-level visit in years. His trip was followed by Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s (MBS) trip to Türkiye in June.
The two leaders also met last week on the sidelines of the G-20 summit in Bali, Indonesia.
