Meeting comes on sidelines of G-20 summit in capital New Delhi
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Saturday met the leaders of MIKTA, a partnership between Mexico, Indonesia, South Korea, Türkiye, and Australia, on the sidelines of the G-20 summit in India’s capital New Delhi.
Erdogan held talks with Indonesian counterpart Joko Widodo, South Korea’s Yoon Suk Yeol, and Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese.
Since Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador could not attend the G-20 summit, Economy Minister Raquel Buenrostro Sanchez represented him at the session.
Erdogan underlined that MIKTA has made “significant progress” based on shared vision and values.
Pointing out that the current global system and international organizations are deemed insufficient in terms of ensuring peace, security, and prosperity in the world, the Turkish leader underscored that challenges such as terrorism and Islamophobia increase MIKTA’s responsibility for building a more just world.
During the meeting, Erdogan was accompanied by Turkish Foreign Minister Hakan Fidan and Treasury and Finance Minister Mehmet Simsek.
Created in 2013, MIKTA aims to contribute constructive solutions to regional and global challenges as well as enhancing effectiveness of global governance. MIKTA members also work to strengthen their economic and political ties.
