Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu arrived in New York on Tuesday night to hold financial talks and attend a series of meetings at the United Nations.

On the first day of his four-day visit, Davutoglu is scheduled to hold talks with a group of finance specialists and investors, as well as with representatives of the Turkish-American community.

He will meet UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon on Thursday to discuss global issues including Syria, Iraq and Cyprus.

On Friday, he will address the UN General Assembly on gender equality and the empowerment of women.

Davutoglu was welcomed at John F. Kennedy International Airport by Turkey’s ambassador to the US Serdar Kilic and Turkey’s Permanent Representative to the UN Yasar Halit Cevik among other dignitaries.

Accompanying Davutoglu was Ali Babacan, deputy prime minister responsible for the economy, and Finance Minister Mehmet Simsek.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
