No: 146, 25 May 2018, Press Release Regarding Africa Day
We join in celebrating “25 May Africa Day” of the African Union and the African countries.
Relations between Turkey and African countries while deriving their strength through historical bonds are also linked by a common vision for the future. We fully support the development efforts of the African Continent, whose influence is progressively increasing at the global level.
Turkey will maintain efforts to further advance its cooperation with African countries, that has gained considerable momentum over the last decade while continuing to display solidarity with Africa at regional and international platforms, as well as furthering its active cooperation with the African Union on the basis of their strategic partnership.
