Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu and Mali's Minister of Foreign Affairs & International Cooperation Tieman Hubert Coulibaly signed a cooperation protocol between the foreign ministries of Turkey and Mali on Saturday.
In a joint press conference, Davutoglu said that when difficult days were over, Mali would be the strongest country of Africa.
Elections which will take place in July in Mali will reshape the future of the country, said Davutoglu, adding that the important thing was to restore stability in Mali without any foreign and permanent intervention.
Davutoglu said he would pay a visit to Mali soon, adding that the two countries would set up an action plan in agriculture and energy areas.
Guest minister, in his part, said his country had been passing through a difficult period, adding that Turkey had been in solidarity with Mali during this period.
Noting that illiteracy was one of the sources of terrorism, Coulibaly said that Turkey supported Mali in its struggle against illiteracy.
Turkish schools in Mali gained great success and Turkish teachers educated thousands of students, said Coulibaly, adding that his three children were being educated in a Turkish school.
Coulibaly said that the problem in Mali could not be solved only by military methods. "We will solve it by economic and political ways," he said.
