Before traveling to Brussels for a NATO summit, including his first meeting with Biden since last year’s US election, Erdogan told reporters he would raise the White House decision to recognize the 1915 massacres of Armenians by Ottomans as genocide, which had angered Turkey.

He and Biden would also address an F-35 jet program from which Washington removed Ankara after the S-400 purchase in 2019 and what Erdogan called unkept US promises over the alternative US Patriot missiles.
