During the meeting in Ankara, the two sides discussed major regional issues including developments in Palestine and Jerusalem al-Quds, al-Ahd news agency reported.
Haniyeh also briefed Erdogan on the situation in Gaza and the sufferings of the people there as a result of the Zionist regime blockade.
It is Haniyeh’s first foreign trip since becoming the resistance movement’s Political Bureau Chief.
The Gaza Strip has been under an Israeli blockade since June 2007. It has caused a decline in the standard of living as well as unprecedented levels of unemployment and unrelenting poverty.
The occupying regime has imposed three major wars against Gaza, killing thousands of people each time and shattering the impoverished territory’s already poor infrastructure.
