Speaking to the press after the meeting of EXPO 2015 Milan Promotion Committee, Prodi said Milan's winning the EXPO 2015 would not harm the Italian-Turkish relations.
"My talks in Paris were also important for not harming our friendship with the Turkish President. The result of the voting did not harm our friendship. President Gul indeed invited me to Turkey," said Prodi.
"If we consider the magnificent growth Turkey is in, Izmir's candidacy was not something to take lightly," he said.
