PM: Stability and peace of region is related with Turkey's prosperity
Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that stability and peace of the region was related with Turkey's prosperity and growth, Anadolu Agency reported.
We have always supported peace, dialogue and consensus, added Erdogan who spoke on behalf of government on 2013 Budget at Turkish Parliament on Monday.
Turkey has always supported the victim and rightful one, not the cruel and strong one, said Erdogan. Noting that Syrian people were brothers of Turkish people, Erdogan said that Turkey had a problem with Assad administration not with territorial integrity of Syria, adding that Turkey had the same view about Iraq too.
Erdogan said that Turkey was helping in every part of the world via TIKA, adding that TIKA undertook 10,086 projects between 2002 and 2011.
Turkey extended 1.2 billion USD of development assistance to other countries in 2011, said Erdogan.
