Turkey and African countries need each other, experts say

A think tank summit on Turkish-African relations in Istanbul stressed the strengthened cooperation between African countries and Turkey and Ankara's changed policy toward Africa. Experts said Turkey and countries in Africa need each other in many areas ranging from construction to health. Sunday in Istanbul, the Association of Researchers on the Middle East and Africa (ORDAF) with the cooperation of the Presidency of Turks Abroad and Related Communities (YTB) held a Turkish-African think tank summit. Several researchers from different think tanks who study Africa, journalists, academics and politicians attended the summit. The summit is considered significant in terms of highlighting the increase in Turkish activity in Africa and Turkey's changing policy toward countries on the continent. Experts underlined that African countries and Turkey need each other, as Turkey can offer a lot in many areas from construction to health, while African countries, which suffered from colonialism for centuries, can trust Turkey's sincere approach, which does not contain colonial aims.
