Delivering a speech at the Istanbul World Forum, Erdogan said that those who tried to create a bad and wrong image that Islam was identical with terrorism were actually supporters of terrorism in the world.
Erdogan said Islamophobia was kind of an appearance of racism, and this wrong mentality has become a danger not only for the western countries but also for whole world.
There was need for a new order that would create a fair global income distribution, he said. Countries should take more responsibilities regarding sustainable development and combating poverty, he said.
