Turkish VP, EU foreign policy head meet in Italy

Turkey's vice president on Tuesday met EU foreign policy chief in southern Italy, according to a presidential source.

Turkey's Fuat Oktay and Frederica Mogherini met in Palermo on the sidelines of an international conference on Libya, said the source, who asked not to be named due to restrictions on speaking to the media.

During the closed-door meeting, the two dignitaries also spoke about the efforts to further expand Turkish-EU relations.

Oktay and Mogherini also discussed the EU funds, which are not transferred to the Syrian target groups in Turkey due to excessive rules arising from EU legislation.
