Prime Minister Shinzo Abe left Monday for a three-day trip to Turkey, where he is expected to affirm closer bilateral economic cooperation, including on exports of Japanese nuclear reactors, with Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

The trip, following one in May when the two governments signed an accord for the peaceful use of atomic power, is also aimed at bolstering security cooperation and exploring the possibility of launching negotiations on a bilateral free trade agreement, according to Japanese officials.
