Relations between Turkey and Grenada

Relations between Turkey and Grenada have been limited due to geographical distance and different foreign policy priorities of both countries. The outreach policy of Turkey towards Latin America and the Caribbean region has gained momentum in recent years and increasing attention has been paid to the region. Opening of new Embassies in the region, development and technical cooperation projects carried out by the Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency (TIKA) and increased institutional relations with regional organizations have contributed to the development of our bilateral relations with Grenada as well.

The Embassy of Turkey in Port of Spain is accredited to Grenada.

Turkey and Grenada support each other's candidacy in international forums to the extent possible, particularly for candidacies in the UN and its subsidiary bodies.
