ANKARA (Reuters) - Preparations are underway for Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan and his U.S. counterpart Donald Trump to meet in person before a NATO summit in May, Erdogan's spokesman said on Wednesday.

Speaking at a press conference in Ankara, Ibrahim Kalin said the two leaders were almost definitely going to meet on the sidelines of the NATO summit but efforts focused on getting them together even before that.
