Turkey’s Prime Minister Recep Tayip Erdogan, met with world leaders today including Armenian President Serge Sarkisian in the nuclear security summit held in Washington D.C.

It was the first time a major Turkish representative has been to the United Stated on official duty since the Narrowly passed resolution that declares the 1915 mass murder of Armenian’s as genocide in the U.S parliament.

The move had angered Turkish Prime Minister and senior officials to such an extent that the Turkish Ambassador in Washington was called back to Turkey.

The vote by the U.S. government was feared that it would strain ties between Turkey and Armenia after relations had improved between the middle-eastern countries as a historic diplomatic protocol was signed in October 2009 to normalise diplomatic ties.

However the summit in Washington was more to do with nuclear weapons which Obama said is more dangerous in the hands of terrorists rather then rogue nations such as North Korea and Iran.

The summit which is being held for two days starting from today will host 47 leaders from around the world with the topic being to rid the world of nuclear weapons.

Turkey’s Deputy Foreign Minister Feridun Sinirlioğlu, Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu, Deputy Chief of Staff to the President of Armenia Vigen Sarkisian and Armenian Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian were all present at the meeting.

Rumours are still ongoing that the U.S. will also use the summit to make relations better between the three nations.
