Turkey is getting prepared to host Turkey-Africa Cooperation Summit between August 18th and 21st in Istanbul.
After 10 years of a gradually evolving policy of opening up to Africa, Turkey now wishes to evaluate the current state of affairs and make a leap forward in the relationship. With this understanding, Turkey decided to host the Turkey-Africa Cooperation Summit in Istanbul.
Presidents of 12 countries and many other officials are expected to participate in the summit.
In an interview with the A.A correspondent, Murat Bilhan, deputy chairman of Turkish Asian Center for Strategic Studies (TASAM), said Africa had several important opportunities for Turkey.
Bilhan said he considered that Turkey would also get assistance for its candidacy for a non-permanent seat at the United Nations (UN) Security Council in Turkey-Africa Cooperation Summit.
