The UK’s Minister for Europe, Sir Alan Duncan, visited Turkey for the 2018 Gallipoli commemorations.
The Minister paid respects to allied forces who lost their lives over a century ago in the World War One Gallipoli campaign.
Sir Alan attended an International Service of Commemoration where he was invited to deliver a speech of reconciliation and lay a wreath.
He will join other dignitaries from around the world representing New Zealand, Australia and France.
The Minister for Europe Sir Alan Duncan said:
I am honoured to attend the Gallipoli commemorations and pay respects to allied forces who fought in the World War One campaign.
It is also a remarkable testament to the power of reconciliation that a century after Turkey and the UK were on opposite sides, we now stand shoulder to shoulder as NATO allies and trusted friends.
