The African Union declared May 25th, which marks the anniversary of its foundation as Africa Day. We celebrate this meaningful day of the African Union and nations of the African continent.
By virtue of Africa Day, various events are held every year also in Turkey. This year, an Iftar dinner was organized as part of Africa Day on Thursday, May 23rd, at the Presidential Complex, hosted by H.E. Emine Erdoğan, First Lady of the Republic of Turkey, with the participation as the guest of honour of H.E. Zeynep Abdi Muallim, First Lady of the Federal Republic of Somalia. The book titled "African Food Culture", prepared with the contributions of the spouses of the Ambassadors of African countries in Ankara, was launched on the occasion of this event.
We fully support the efforts in the direction of peace, stability and development of the African continent, whose influence on the world stage is progressively increasing. We will continue to develop our cooperation and to extend our solidarity in all areas with the African countries and the African Union, in line with our Africa Partnership Policy and within the period leading to the 3rd Turkey-Africa Summit, which is planned to be held in Turkey in 2020.
