ANKARA, TURKEY (AP) - President Barack Obama says progress on the global economic crisis is an example of a collaborative relationship between Turkey and the United States.

He says the two countries came together to ensure that the world’s largest economies took strong and coordinated action to address the crisis.

Obama told the Turkish parliament Monday that the two countries can work together to pursue prosperity in the future.

He highlighted energy and climate change as areas of upcoming collaboration. He says the United States will continue to support Turkey’s central role as an East-West corridor for oil and natural gas.

Obama is making his first visit to a predominantly Muslim nation.
