Turkish deputy prime minister said Saturday Turkey has sent almost $1 billion worth of aid to Somalia since 2011 as part of the country's Africa strategy.

Axar.az reports that, speaking after the G20 finance ministers and central bank governors meeting in western German town of Baden-Baden, Mehmet Şimşek said Turkey shared its existing strategies especially on Africa during the meeting.

Şimşek said one of the agenda items of G20 was to strengthen dialogue with African countries, "because the next 100 years will be the [years] of Africa."

"So what is Asia today in terms of global economy; If Asia is the biggest engine of the global economy today, there is the possibility for Africa in the future.

"Turkey is already making an enormous effort towards Africa. We have a strategy. So we had 12 embassies in 2004 and now there are 39," he said.

Turkish minister also stated that the two-day meeting in Baden-Baden was a "fruitful" for Turkey to express itself to the investors.

"We tried to remove the question marks in the minds of those who have investments in Turkey and those who are considering to invest," he said.
