According to Ahmet Davutoglu, Turkey does not forget about the Balkans, the Middle East, the Caucasus and Central Asia. "We do not forget the Balkans, the Middle East, the Caucasus and Central Asia, despite the fact that we spend most of our time in Ankara. No one can force us to leave these regions," Ahmet Davutoglu said during the meeting of the ruling Justice and Development Party in Ankara.
According to him, Turkish hearts "are partly located in Istanbul, Medina and Jerusalem."
Davutoglu reminded of an agreement to restore the Hejaz Railway Station in Amman, which is the capital of Jordan.
"During World War I, the Ottoman Empire developed a plan to connect Istanbul and Medina with the Hejaz railway line. However, external forces prevented realization of this undertaking. We are now beginning the restoration of the station in Amman," Davutoglu said.
He is sure that the station’s restoration will prove unity and alliance between the regions.
"Certain forces tried to break the threads which linked Turkey to the region, but in spite of all the evil games, we will continue building bridges of faith and unity," Turkish Prime Minister claimed.
"We will protect our interests and positions in all the regions," he said.
