US President Barack Obama will meet with Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan in the White House on December 7.
The White House announced the meeting Thursday.
White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said Obama looks forward to discussing a broad range of issues with Erdogan, including strategies for Afghanistan and Pakistan, Middle East peace efforts, human rights, nonproliferation and the Iranian nuclear program.
In a Telegraph interview published last week, Erdogan had accused Western powers of having an unfair approach toward Iran.
