Turkey’s Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu will step down later this month, after talks aimed at easing tensions with President Recep Tayyip Erdogan reportedly failed.

Davutoglu announced in a press conference that he will give up his position when the ruling AK party holds an extraordinary congress to elect a new leader on the 22nd of May.

Describing his relations with Erdogan as “brotherly”, Davutoglu said he had delivered on all his promises, except a new constitution, which was well on the way to being introduced.
