President of Turkey Recep Tayyip Erdogan congratulated the U.S. President-Elect Donald Trump late Wednesday in a phone call.

In the call, the president reiterated Turkey's commitment to its fight against terror and its collaboration with the United States.

Presidential sources stated that Erdogan wished Trump a successful term in the office, also expressing his willingness to strengthen Turkey-U.S. relations.

Erdogan said that Turkey and the U.S. were allies who had "mutual respect, mutual profits and shared values," the source added.

The president later also tweeted: "I congratulate @realDonaldTrump on being elected as the 45th President of the US and look forward to further strengthening our relations."

Earlier in the day had Erdogan expressed his hope that Trump's elections would lead to the good of American people. "I hope the choice of American people will lead to good steps for basic rights and freedoms, democracy and future of our region," he had said, adding that he intends to keep that view on the positive side.

Trump is expected to take oath of office on Jan. 20 as the 45th president of the United States.

Donald Trump was elected America's 45th president Tuesday, in an astonishing victory for a celebrity businessman and political novice who capitalized on voters' economic anxieties, took advantage of racial tensions and overcame a string of sexual assault allegations on his way to the White House.
