Turkey's President Erdogan on Africa - Exclusive Interview

AllAfrica's Amadou Mahtar Ba interviewed Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan as he prepared to leave for official visits to Sudan, Tunisia and Chad - a trip which will bring to 24 the total number of African countries he has visited since coming to power. 

This is Erdogan's first interview after the United Nations vote on Jerusalem and his first with an African media organization. In the conversation with AllAfrica's co-founder and executive chair, the Turkish president tackled a range of burning African topics - terrorism, health, women's rights, press freedom, and slavery in Libya - as well as the Gülen network and the July 2016 coup attempt in Turkey.
