Turkey aims to become an essential actor in Asia and contribute to the rise of the continent, as a country that bridges Europe and Asia, Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu said. Within the scope of Turkey's Asia Anew initiative launched in August, a conference attended by numerous representatives and ambassadors of Asian countries was held in the capital Ankara Tuesday, headed by Çavuşoğlu. Turkey aims to revitalize relations with Asia on a win-win principle, developing cooperation and projects with the region's countries.
The minister underlined that he expected the support of the ambassadors in enhancing relations and developing cooperation while he briefed them following the Foreign Ministry's workshop held with the participation of several academics and think-tanks in December.
"We see no problem in strengthening our relations with Asia as an important NATO member and an important European economy. Asia will constitute two-thirds of international growth in the next 10 years while probably four of the five biggest economies of the world in the next 15 years will be in Asia," Çavuşoğlu stated, touching upon Turkey's role as a bridge between Asia and Europe.
