Swedish Royals head to Turkey

Sweden's King Carl Gustaf and Queen Silvia are expected to travel to Turkey on Monday for a five-day official visit at the invitation of Turkish President Ahmet Necdet Sezer, a statement from the president's office said on Sunday.

The statement did not give the itinerary of the May 29th-June 2nd visit, but newspaper reports said the royal couple are expected to visit historic sites in western Turkey and the city of Istanbul following official talks in Ankara.
