Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who made statements at the MIKTA Leaders Summit within the scope of theG20 Leaders Summit held in New Delhi, the capital of India, reacted to the attacks on the Quran. Erdogan underlined that 'attacks are absolutely "unacceptable".
President Erdogan told the MIKTA leaders that they aim to build a fairer world.
"While injustices are growing in the world, the ability of international organizations to produce solutions to these problems is unfortunately decreasing. This picture increases our responsibility for the peaceful resolution of conflicts, building a fairer world, and securing multilateralism. This is the situation behind our determination that 'the world is bigger than 5', which we express at every opportunity," Erdogan said.
The Turkish President also reacted to the recent attacks on the Quran in the world.
"Instead of hate crimes, discrimination, Islamophobia, and xenophobia, we need to make mutual respect and a culture of coexistence prevail. It is never acceptable that the most sacred values of 2 billion people are allowed to be attacked almost every day under the guise of freedom of expression,” he said.
“We believe that everyone who respects human beings, regardless of their religion, should object to this. As Türkiye, we will continue to express our reaction on this issue," he added.
Emphasizing that efforts to bring Russia back to the grain agreement are continuing, Erdogan called on MIKTA countries to tackle the food crisis.
"I am convinced that as MIKTA countries we can make a constructive contribution to tackling the food crisis that threatens the whole world. I hope that our unity will support efforts to tackle crises and new challenges. I thank my dear friend Joko Widodo (President of Indonesia) for organizing this meeting," he added.
