Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan did not have time to meet with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo during his visit to Turkey. This was reported by RIA Novosti, citing a senior US State Department spokesman.

"And the secretary general, Turkish officials, including Foreign Minister Mlut Cavusoglu, I think President Erdogan, would like it to happen. It did not work. "In the end, it did not happen because President Erdogan's schedule changed, it was not possible to adjust the parameters that were introduced in the basis of the Secretary of State's visit," a State Department spokesman told reporters in Istanbul.

It is noted that the text of the briefing was disseminated by the State Department. The US State Department spokesman noted the differences between the United States and Turkey, but when asked why Erdogan might be offended, he said the issue was only on schedule.
