Turkish Minister of EU Affairs and Chief Negotiator, Egemen Bagis said that the global problems showed how important fraternity was.
Speaking to young members of various civil society organizations in Eyup town of the north-western province of Istanbul, Bagis said that "had all those feeling the excitement of Ramadan been in fraternity with each other, Somalia would not be in a state of famine, Arakan in a state of tyranny and Syria in a state of killing its own people with tanks and bombs".
It is the young people who would benefit from fraternity, Bagis stressed.
I am making efforts to unite our society and bring together common interests, Bagis also said.
