Turkish President Erdogan discusses relations with his Djiboutian counterpart

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his Djibouti counterpart, Ismail Omer Guelleh, discussed bilateral relations on Friday.

A meeting between Erdogan with presidents and heads of state is underway as part of Türkiye’s Antalya Diplomacy Forum (ADF).

In his meeting with Guelleh, Erdogan emphasized relations based on the continuation and deepening reciprocal respect and deep-rooted cooperation with all African countries, including Djibouti.

Other high-level officials from Türkiye, including National Defense Minister Yasar Guler and Communications Director Fahrettin Altun, also attended the meeting.


The third addition of the Forum began Thursday and will be attended by nearly 4,500 participants, including 19 heads of state, 73 ministers and 57 international representatives.

The Forum, themed Elevating Diplomacy Amidst Crises, will cover topics such as global issues, climate change, migration, Islamophobia, trade wars and artificial intelligence.

The 2021 Forum had 2,000 attendees but this year, more than twice that number is expected. In 2022, 30 panels were organized, while this year, from March 1 - 3, 52 panels will be held.

The Forum will include a wide range of participants, from diplomats and politicians to students, academics, civil society organizations and the business community.

Multiple exhibitions will also be featured.
