Turkey's Erdogan addresses FAO meeting in Rome

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Tuesday the countries of the world must encourage more investments in the agriculture sector.

Erdogan delivered a speech at the Summit of Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) in Rome as a guest of honor.

Small farmers must be provided adequate subsidies and should be helped receive the materials needed for farming, Erdogan said.

The most recent global crisis has given important messages that must be received well, Erdogan said.

The imbalance between countries, wastefulness and unlimited consumption as well as excessive greed all contributed to the global crisis, Erdogan said.

Everybody knows the importance of global solidarity in overcoming the crisis. We have to take into consideration the wide gap between different societies when it comes to food production, Erdogan also said.

Erdogan said Turkey observed the terrible condition of poor countries and unlimited consumption in rich ones.

Eradicating such an imbalance and inequality is crucial for the future of not only poor nations but also rich ones, Erdogan said.

We should not permit the destruction of feeling of justice and solidarity in the world, Erdogan stressed.

We support the efforts and initiatives of the FAO and World Food Program in order to facilitate security for food production in the world, Erdogan also said.

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations leads international efforts to defeat hunger. Serving both developed and developing countries, FAO acts as a neutral forum where all nations meet as equals to negotiate agreements and debate policy.
