Turkish policy towards Africa witnessed important developments over time that began before the Ottoman era and then developed during the Ottoman era when the Ottoman state played an important role in maintaining security by confronting Portuguese interventions in North Africa and sending military aid.
Thus, the Ottoman state was able to develop its policy towards Africa for important considerations based mainly on the employment of the religious factor and the spread of Islam for the African acceptance of the Ottomans in the African territories and thus, achieve economic, strategic and political motives.
Later, these relations declined in the Republican era due to the weak political and economic potential of Turkey on the one hand and the Republic's orientations towards the West and the severance of relations with the Arab-Islamic East on the other.
The relationship with Africa, according to Turkish politicians at the time, does not benefit Turkey in its orientation towards the West in order to join the European Union.
Under the AKP, Turkey's government, led by Recep Tayyip Erdogan, has placed Africa at the top of its foreign agenda.
This interest was reflected in the promotion of political, economic and cultural rapprochement through openness to Africa and Turkey's announcement of its new strategy to develop its economic relations with the African Union countries By providing Turkish development assistance to the African continent through projects, investments and trade exchange between the two parties, in addition to spreading the Turkish language and culture by opening schools and universities.
Thus, Turkey was able to build a solid base for its political and economic influence outside the EU, which means imposing the new policy of Ottomans' and creating an international Islamic axis.
Turkey, through its policy of opening up to the continent, also tried to find its position as a contender for the superpowers through the dimensions of rival powers, including Iran and Israel, and to draw the attention of the United States.
With this new policy, Turkey is trying to preserve its true status and political and historical weight as an important regional state and an ever-evolving economic power
