LONDON - President Abdullah Gul said on Sunday Turkey was determined to overcome opposition to its bid to join the European Union before beginning a visit to Britain that underlines the growing political and economic ties between the two countries.

Gul's visit to London, where he will be a guest of Queen Elizabeth, symbolizes Britain's push for closer links with emerging markets such as Turkey.

Britain hopes that increasing trade and investment with fast-growing economies such as Turkey will boost the British economy's anemic recovery from recession at a time when key trading partners in the euro zone are mired in a debt crisis.

Britain supports Turkey's bid to join the EU. The two countries also increasingly see eye-to-eye on how to handle Syrian President Bashar Assad's crackdown on protests, with Turkey threatening sanctions unless the bloodshed stops.
