Somali-Turkish Relations

Aljazeera published on 21 January 2015 a commentary titled "Erdogan: The Hero of Somalia" by Abukar Arman, Somalia's former special envoy to the United States. 

Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is scheduled to visit Somalia in the aftermath of a bombing at a hotel in Mogadishu.  Part of an African tour, the trip is designed to strengthen the strategic relationship between Turkey and Somalia.  The author believes the timing of the visit in the aftermath of the bombing will only enhance Erdogan's reputation in the region.
