Somali Prime Minister Hassan Ali Khayre will make his first official visit to Turkey on Wednesday.

According to Turkey’s prime ministry, Khayre will visit from Wednesday until Friday and meet Somali citizens being treated in Turkey following an Oct. 14 truck bomb which killed at least 358 people and injured 228 others in Mogadishu.

Thirty-five Somalis, including three children, injured in the truck bombing were airlifted to Turkey for medical treatment.

Khayre will meet Prime Minister Binali Yildirim in Ankara on Thursday to discuss bilateral relations, regional and international issues.
