Turkey’s Erdogan to visit East Africa on May 31-June 3
The visit is part of Turkish foreign policy's stated aim of boosting ties with Africa

ANKARA (AA) – Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan will pay a four-day, two-country visit to East Africa from May 31 to June 3, a statement from the Presidential Press Office said on Monday.

Erdogan will first visit Uganda on May 31 to June 1, and then proceed to Kenya on June 1-3.

The Turkish president did the first leg of his Sub-Saharan African tour in the West African country of Senegal this February.

Then in April, he continued in West Africa with visits to Ivory Coast, Ghana, Nigeria, and Guinea.

During his latest visits to Africa, Erdogan vowed to boost Turkish-African relations.

When Erdogan was prime minister, Ankara declared 2005 the Year of Africa, Turkey was accorded observer status by the Africa Union, and Turkey’s official policy of “opening to Africa” gained new momentum.
