Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Saturday that they considered Islamophobia an appearance of racism.
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.
Erdogan said the Turkish International Development and Cooperation Agency (TIKA) has been conducting its activities in 100 countries, stating that Turkey's aids to underdeveloped countries reached 1.5 billion U.S. dollars this year.
