Turkey’s prime minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said on Thursday that Turkey had no other goal in its geography than peace, democracy and law. He said that Turkey was not after power and domination, and it did not have different intentions.
“We are trying to develop a relationship based on solidarity and cooperation in this geography with which we have brotherhood ties, a common history, culture and belief,” Erdoğan said during the Kazan Federal University in Tatarstan.
Premier Erdoğan said Turkey had raised its national income by three-folds in eight years, and had become the 17th biggest economy in the world.
The prime minister set Turkey’s target to become one of the ten biggest economies in world in 2023, when the country would celebrate the 100th anniversary of its foundation.
