Turkish President Meets Finnish Leaders

The official stage of Turkish President Abdullah Gül's visit to Finland started on Wednesday.

After his meeting with President Tarja Halonen, Gül said that he would like more solidarity from the EU in the fight against terrorism. The EU also considers the PKK a terrorist organisation.

President Gül later met with Prime Minister Matti Vanhanen. On Thursday he is scheduled to lay a wreath at the Hietaniemi cemetery, before leaving for Jyväskylä, where he will meet former President Martti Ahtisaari and visit the Univeristy of Jyväskylä and the Alvar Aalto museum
