Obama reaches out to Muslim world

Text size Aa Aa

US President Barack Obama is in Turkey on the last leg of his event-packed European tour.

Having arrived late on Sunday, Obama was this morning at the tomb of modern Turkey’s founder Mustafa Kemal Ataturk for a wreath-laying ceremony. The US leader has reached out to Turkey to help him wind down the Iraq war and bring stability to the Middle East. Although Obama has enjoyed widespread support in Europe, his backing of Turkey’s bid to join the EU is not without controversy and is opposed by several members of the 27-nation bloc.
