The rumor mill is spinning – will Sultan Erdoğan receive Ludwig?


According to the Turkish ambassador, a meeting will take place on June 10. The town hall does not confirm this.

The excitement was high on Saturday morning when several media reported that Mayor Michael Ludwig (SPÖ) would be received by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan on June 10. According to the “Presse”, the information came from the Turkish ambassador. The contact would have been through the Turkish ruling party AKP.

At the request of “Krone” at the town hall, Ludwig’s office said this visit could not be confirmed. “A meeting is planned between the chairman of the Austrian Association of Cities (Ludwig, note) with the chairman of the Turkish Association of Cities,” said a spokesman.

Relations between Austria and Turkey are tense. The republic campaigned for an end to EU accession negotiations. In June, Chancellor Karl Nehammer (ÖVP) will meet Erdoğan at the NATO summit.
