Queen Beatrix to visit Turkey
Queen Beatrix will start a two-day visit to Turkey on Wednesday; the Dutch monarch will visit the capital Ankara as well as Istanbul. The visit is part of the celebrations marking 400 years of diplomatic relations between the Netherlands and Turkey.
It's the second time that Queen Beatrix has visited Turkey in the past five years; earlier this year Turkish President Abdullah Gül made a state visit to the Netherlands and this trip is in response to the Turkish state visit. (...)
