🇹🇷 Turkey's booming investments in Africa | Al Jazeera English

Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is on a five-day trip to four countries in West Africa. Ankara has invested heavily in the African continent.

Turkey’s interests in Africa rival the ones of former colonial powers like France and the UK, as well as China.

One of the countries Erdogan is visiting is Senegal, where Turkey has a huge influence.

Al Jazeera’s Nicolas Haque reports from Senegal’s capital, Dakar.

  9. erdoGan vs erdawn —>(proper pronunciation)
    as words(turkic) migrate east to west they sometimes drop/gain a vowel in the begining of the word. sometimes B is changed to P sometimes the soft g in oguz is lost as in AUStria or the g becomes pronounce as in August.

    ertugrul becomes Arthur or ard becomes earth its fascinating lol ordek becomes duck
    maybe the word Dik(erect) becomes slang for something else 😉

    then there is a word like dawn: turkish word for east is DOgU(the g in dogu is soft like the sound of w) the word Dogu is rooted in the turkish word for birth which is dogum…and turks refer to DAWN the rising sun as do(w)an gunesh
