Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe congratulated President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on his success in Sunday’s presidential and parliamentary elections in a phone call, Turkey's presidential press office said Thursday.
Erdogan and Abe confirmed their commitment to further enhance bilateral relations in the future, said sources.
Touching upon expediting the construction of a nuclear power plant in Turkey's northern Sinop province, the two leaders agreed to meet at the G20 Summit that is to be held at the end of 2018 in Argentina's Buenos Aires.
Recalling that Japan holds the chairmanship of the G20 Summit in 2019, Abe expressed his appreciation to see Erdogan in Japan again.
Erdogan won an absolute majority in the presidential poll with 52.5 percent of the vote, while his main rival Muharrem Ince gathered 30.6 percent.
