Turkish President Erdo?an is scheduled to visit the African countries in late January
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdo?an will travel to Tanzania, Mozambique and Madagascar for official visits between January 22-25.
“We hope to expand our diplomacy across Africa, Latin America and Asia. This is due to our proactive diplomacy,” Erdo?an said at the 9th Ambassadors Conference in the capital of Ankara on Monday.
Erdogan will first visit Tanzania on Jan. 22-23, followed by Mozambique on Jan. 23-24. He will then proceed to Madagascar on Jan. 24-25.
