Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu will come to Paris on Thursday night as the official guest of his French counterpart Bernard Kouchner.
After speaking at a conference at the International Diplomacy Academy, Davutoglu will meet with Kouchner on Friday.

He is also set to hold a news conference at the International Press Center.

Bernard Valero, spokesman for the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs, said that the visit would make valuable contributions to efforts to strengthen the bilateral relations between the two countries. He said that recent regional and international developments including the issues of Middle East and Iran would be high on agenda of the meeting between Davutoglu and Kouchner.

Turkey's EU membership process and the ongoing "Turkish Season" activities in Paris are the other topics on Davutoglu's agenda.

France has obstructed opening of five chapter headings in Turkey's EU negotiation process by claiming that they were directly regarded with full membership.

Davutoglu was scheduled to visit Paris on October 23. But the visit was postponed because of the session at the Turkish parliament on Armenia.
