KARAMAN – Anadolu Agency
AA PhotoPrime Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu promised that a high-speed train will extend to the Central Anatolian province of Karaman and toward eastern Turkey, speaking during a public rally in the city on May 18.
Davutoğlu vowed that the high-speed train will connect Karaman with the southern province of Adana and the southeastern provinces of Şanlıurfa and Şırnak.
He also said his ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) would connect the city more closely to Adana through new and improved highways.
In his speech, the prime minister said he “could understand” problems with urban transportation and sympathize with citizens over the issue, adding that he lost his mother at the age of four because she could not reach a hospital on time.
“Although this is God’s will, it is up to us to take the necessary precautions. We will take all the necessary measures,” Davutoğlu vowed.
