Erdogan calls on Turkish actors to join Kuwait investments

The Turkish prime minister said on Tuesday that Turkish actors could take part in the investments to be carried out by Kuwait.

Delivering a speech at the "Business Forum Meeting" hosted by Kuwait Chamber of Trade & Industry, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said a crowded Turkish business delegation accompanied him during his visit to Kuwait.

Noting that the trade volume between Turkey and Kuwait should reach billions of dollars, Erdogan said Turkish businessmen explicitly showed their strong will to do business with their Kuwaiti counterparts.

"We want a new era in Turkish-Kuwaiti relations," he said.

Erdogan noted that Turkey had established close relations with all the countries in its region, especially with its neighbors, in recent years.

"Countries in our region, which have remained distant to each other for decades, are now getting closer than ever. We are carrying the cooperation between our nations to a further level," he said.

Erdogan said that countries in the region had the potential to meet each other's needs.

Pointing to the importance of solidarity and sharing among these countries, the premier said none of those states could achieve peace, stability and development unless the existing problems in the region were resolved.

Stating that some circles criticized Turkey's close ties with the Arab world, Erdogan said, "The prosperity to be gained thanks to the economic, political and administrative cooperation between our nations will be the best reply to such criticisms".

The Turkish prime minister also noted that Turkish and Kuwaiti businessmen could cooperate in projects related to organic agriculture, energy and transportation.

"Kuwait has a 120 billion USD investment target. I believe Turkish actors can take part in these investments," he said.

After completing his talks in Kuwait, Prime Minister Erdogan proceeded to Qatar's capital Doha.
