“We believe in a different kind of world. We believe in a better world. This is not just possible, it’s necessary,” he said. “We want to sketch out a new era for the world. A multi-polar world where everyone can find their place.”

Erdogan also censured foreign intervention in South America during the rare visit to the country by his Venezuelan opposite number.

“I believe there is no force above that of the will of the people and we think that most of the time, foreign interventions deepen the problems,” Erdogan said following talks with Maduro.

Erdogan expressed positivity that the Latin American state will soon overcome its current “difficult period” with “ease, dialogue and compromise.”
