ISTANBUL - Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said on Tuesday he was expecting to hold a campaign rally in a European city next month ahead of June elections despite a ban by some Western countries on Turkish politicians campaigning abroad.

"God willing, in May, we will hold our first meeting in a closed sports hall in Europe in a European country. All preparations are complete," Erdogan said in a speech to members of his ruling AK party.



He did not identify the European country.



Erdogan has called snap parliamentary and presidential elections for June 24 so that Turkey can switch quickly to a new executive presidency system that was narrowly approved by a referendum last year.
