President Joe Biden says he had a ``very good meeting'' with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on the sidelines of the NATO summit in Brussels.

Biden's brief comment came after he and Erdogan met privately on Monday before being joined by other officials.

Erdogan also said he held a "fruitful and sincere" meeting with Biden.

"We believe there is no problem that cannot be resolved in Turkey-US relations," Erdogan added after holding his first meeting with Biden since his election.

The two leaders spent in total more than an hour together.

Biden was expected to raise a range of issues with Erdogan, including Afghanistan, Syria and Turkey's purchase of advanced Russian missile systems which has complicated Washington's relations with Ankara.
