Dharmendra Pradhan to Attend World Petroleum Congress in Turkey

Dharmendra Pradhan to Attend World Petroleum Congress in Turkey”

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu and U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson met on Sunday in Istanbul ahead of a major oil congress in the city.

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said on Sunday that he appreciates Turkish people's bravery against coup plotters on July 15 a year ago.

"Well before I took [political] office, when news arrived that I would be awarded the Dewhurst Award, I thought I'd spend leisurely time in Istanbul, enjoy this lovely sunny city, perhaps go fishing before collecting it.Didn't turn out this way".

Tillerson largely stayed away from commenting on global politics, but did commend the "brave men and women who barely a year ago stood up against military coup plotters and defended their place in a prosperous Turkey" alluding to the July 2016 coup.

Speaking at the opening ceremony of an oil conference in Istanbul, where he received an award recognizing his four decades of work in the industry, Tillerson also said the United States saw Turkey as a partner in its push for greater energy security in the region. "I recognise their courage and honour the victims". More than 240 people, many of them civilians, died that night. The government says such efforts are needed, given the scope of the security threat it faces. Human-rights groups have said the president and his supporters used the coup as a pretext to quash dissent, and that prison authorities have denied medical care and adequate food and resorted to torturing detainees in some instances.

He arrived in this town on Sunday, and is today scheduled to meet with Erdogan.

Ankara considers the YPG a terrorist group and the Syrian branch of the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) has waged an insurgency inside Turkey since 1984.
