AFP – Turkey’s Prime Minister oversaw the signing of two nuclear agreements with China Monday on a trip to the Asian nation that also saw him make an unprecedented stop in ethnically-tense Xinjiang.
Recep Tayyip Erdogan — on the first official trip to China by a Turkish premier in 27 years — on Monday also held talks on Syria and Iran in Beijing with Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao after his stopover in the northwestern region.
The two agreements — announced at a ceremony attended by Wen and Erdogan following their meeting — pave the way for deeper nuclear cooperation between the two countries, but few concrete details were made available.
