The latest Turkish things of Turkey in Africa

The third Turkey-Africa summit will take place on 17 and 18 December. Here is what we will talk about

The third Turkey-Africa summit will take place between 17 and 18 December, which will not only discuss the common fight against terrorism, the Libyan and Somali crises but also the situation of widespread political instability in Mali, Guinea and in Sudan.

It is clear that this summit will only strengthen Turkish penetration in Africa.

Indeed, within a few years, Turkey signed bilateral agreements with Burkina Faso and Niger. Now it's up to Togo.

And while Italian newspapers and newspapers from beyond the Alps comment favorably on the Italian-French treaty , Turkey not only trains in Somalia – a former Italian area of ​​influence – men of the national army but also established a military infrastructure in Mogadishu in 2017.

Turkey's penetration of Africa is so deep that in 2018 Turkey gave $ 5 million to the Sahel G5 counter-terrorist forces to France's deep and understandable disappointment.

And what about the fact that in October the Turkish president received with full honors both the Nigerian president Muhammadu Buhari and the Chadian president Mahamat Idriss Déby Itno?
