Late last month, re-elected President Recep Tayyip Erdogan will make his first foreign visit of his term to the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC) and Azerbaijan, in a long-standing tradition of Turkish leaders.

On Monday, Erdogan will travel to the TRNC, where he will meet with President Ersin Tatar and Prime Minister Unal Ustunel.

They are expected to discuss the situation in the Eastern Mediterranean and future steps in the Cyprus issue.

After the meeting, Erdogan and Tatar are expected to hold a joint press conference.

Erdogan will visit Azerbaijan tomorrow, where he will meet with President Ilham Aliyev.

He and Aliyev will discuss bilateral relations and cooperation as well as regional and international issues.

Erdogan announced his new cabinet on June 3 after attending a swearing-in and inauguration ceremony in the capital, Ankara.
