Chairman of TASAM, Süleyman Şensoy, expressed in his related declaration that Turkey has been establishing economic and political relations in terms of its multidimensional foreign policy, not only with its close neighbours but the remote countries all around the world as well, and this is a must for our country that has to think in the big dimension in today’s world conjuncture. Chairman Şensoy declared that the political conclusion of the initiative that has been developed between Turkey and Brasil around the nuclear program in Iran has been an historical step.

“When the fact that Latin American and Caribbean Region is an emerging market and an economic development area thanks to its 33 countries and economic growth of approximately 2 trillion dollars is taken into consideration, the importance of establishing amicable relations with the region gets more explicit“ he says.
