Towards Africa: Implications of the Turkish-African Partnership


we will discuss the strategic partnership established by Turkey with Sub-Saharan African countries. This relationship began with the countries of East Africa, especially the countries of the Horn of Africa, then moved slowly towards the countries of West Africa, and then Turkey established its strategic partnerships with the countries of Central and Southern Africa. With this partnership, Turkey has posed a new challenge to Western countries, especially the United States and the European Union, as well as to China and the Arab countries, especially the UAE, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the Arab Republic of Egypt. In this episode, we shall review this partnership in all its aspects.
