imgTurkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu Jan. 30 held a series of meetings with African leaders on the sidelines of the African Union summit in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

Davutoğlu met with Ethiopian Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn Boshe to discuss both Turkey’s nomination for a rotating U.N. Security Council seat and U.S.-Africa relations.

The two-day African Union Summit, which kicked off Jan. 30, is focusing on methods of reducing poverty, promoting economic growth, and creating wealth through agricultural development.

African leaders are expected to review the situation in African countries currently experiencing conflict, including the Central African Republic, South Sudan and Egypt.
