British Prime Minister Theresa May will visit Turkey this week, with the agenda set to focus on ongoing settlement talks in Cyprus, international efforts to defeat the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), and bilateral ties between Ankara and London as Britain prepares to start Brexit negotiations.

May is expected to arrive in Turkey on January 26 or 28, diplomatic sources told ‘Hurriyet’.

The trip comes amid the ongoing series of talks in Geneva for the reunification of Cyprus, with Ankara voicing disappointment on the recent stance of the U.K., which has been a guarantor country in the dispute for decades.

Following a five-party conference on Cyprus in Geneva on January 12, a working group with the participation of the three guarantor powers met in Mont Pelerin in Switzerland on January 18.
