The book “A Decade Transformed: The Revival of Turkey Somalia’s Multilayer Relations was published by Africa Foundation Publishing in Turkey.
The editor of the book, Mehmet Köse, made statements about the book.
Stating that one of the most talked-about issues in Turkey’s African policy in recent years is the Somali policy, Köse stated that “the dizzying developments in Somalia and Turkey-Somalia relations, especially with the active intervention of Turkey in 2011, are a matter of curiosity.”
Köse emphasized that “this process, which started with Turkey’s visit to respond to the humanitarian crisis in Somalia at that time, turned into multi-faceted cooperation in a short time, and that the humanitarian intervention continued with the construction of the economic infrastructure, peace-making, and state-building processes.”.
Köse used the following statements about the book:
