-Bringing up Turkey's potential of being a global actor to the international agenda,

-Putting a proactive diplomacy process on the Cyprus issue into action,

-Starting accession negotiation process with the EU."

In regard to Iraq, the declaration indicated, "Iraq's security and stability is of great importance for Turkey, as a neighbor country, as well as its security. That's why Turkey is one of the countries which exerted the most efforts for security and stability of Iraq."

Stating that they attached a special importance to the north of Iraq, the declaration noted that AK Party worked to boost economic relations with this region.

"On the other hand, terrorists' using the north of Iraq as a shelter prevented improvement of relations. We will take every kind of measure against terror threat stemming from instability in Iraq.
