Turkish President promises ‘win-win’ partnership for Africans

“We in Turkey attach great importance and great value to the close relationship we have with the African continent”, President Erdogan said Monday evening in front of an audience of Angolan businessmen, according to a statement released by his AKP party.

“We wish to advance these relations on the basis of a win-win egalitarian partnership, within the framework of mutual respect”, he continued.

Earlier, in a speech to the Angolan parliament broadcast on the Turkish presidency’s website, Mr. Erdogan estimated that “the fate of mankind cannot and must not be left at the mercy of a handful of countries which are the victors of World War II”.

“Ignoring calls for change is an injustice for Africa”, he added, stressing that Turkey was not “no stain” imperialism or colonialism.

In conversations with his Angolan counterpart Joao Lourenco, the Turkish president praised the Turkish gas industry and stressing that it “would be delighted to share her experience “.

After Angola, the Turkish president was to continue his African tour through Togo and then Nigeria.
