(MENAFN) Ankara gives importance to its rising collaboration with Cuba, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan made a statement on Wednesday.
"I especially attach importance to increasing our cooperation and solidarity with Cuba, one of our main partners in the region," Erdogan declared at a news conference with his Cuban fellow Miguel Diaz-Canel Bermudez in Ankara.
Erdogan added they negotiated how to improve collaboration in fields like energy, tourism, construction, agriculture, development, health, and the environment.
"I believe that this historic visit will constitute a new turning point in Türkiye-Cuba relations," Erdogan further noted.
