Montebourg, stating that they carried out efficient, rich and in-depth talks, said "Turkey plays a very important stabilizing role in the region as well as developing its effectiveness and influence."
"Turkey is very impressive. It is a great nation which has managed to restrengthen in industry, economy, art and each area," French minister said.
Reminding that he had visited Turkey 20 years ago, Montebourg said "It had fascinated me 20 years ago, but this time, it has captivated me more."
