Turkey thinks all humanity should contribute to solution of Africa's problems, President


Turkey's president expressed on Wednesday Turkey's belief that all humanity should contribute to solution of Africa's problems.

ACCRA- President Abdullah Gul said Turkey was closely interested in Africa's problems, and believed that the solution of those problems should not only be left to the Africans.

"Turkey believes all humanity should contribute to solution of these problems," Gul said during a formal dinner hosted in his honor by his Ghanian counterpart John Evans Atta Mills in Accra.

Gul is the first Turkish president ever visiting Ghana.

President Gul said Ghana was a source of inspiration to entire Africa as democracy and free market economy worked there.

Gul said Turkey had re-opened its embassy in Ghana, and distance between Turkey and Ghana had shortened as the Turkish Airlines (THY) started to operate flights to this country.

"I believe my visit will open a new page between our two countries," he said.

Gul said Turkey had opened embassies in 18 African countries, and was willing to raise this number.
Turkey was closely interested in issues concerning Africa, which resulted in establishment of a strategic partnership between Turkey and African Union, Gul also said.

Also speaking in the dinner, Mills said Ghana was closely monitoring Turkey's rapid development under Gul's leadership and was taking it as an example.

Mills said Turkey had great advantages in agriculture and textile, and called on Turkish businessmen to invest in his country.

Turkish President Abdullah Gul inaugurated the chancellery building of the Turkish Embassy in Accra earlier on Wednesday.

On March 24, President Gul will proceed to Gabon to meet President Ali Ben Bongo Ondimba.
The Turkish president will attend business forum meetings to be held by the Confederation of Turkish Businessmen and Industrialists (TUSCON) both in Ghana and Gabon.
