Sudan Hands Over Suakin Island Temporarily to Turkey for Rebuilding
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan declared that Sudan has agreed to hand over Suakin Island temporarily to Turkey for rebuilding, Hurriyet reports.
Suakin, one of the oldest seaports in Africa, was used by African Muslims who set out for pilgrimage to the holy city of Mecca in Saudi Arabia.
Ottomans used the port city to secure Hejaz province - present-day western Saudi Arabia - from attackers using the Red Sea front.
Erdoğan said Turkey has invested around $650 million in Sudan, including $300 million worth of direct investments.
"Foreign direct investment from Turkey to Sudan should increase to over $1 billion in the short term," he added.
