Turkey ready to ‘share infrastructure experience’ with Trump: Yıldırım
ANKARATurkey is ready to “share its experience” with President Donald Trump in the latter’s bid to renew the U.S.’s infrastructure by building new highways, railways and airports, Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım has said.
“Trump has disclosed his most assertive project, saying ‘I will build railways, roads, airports.’ Well, we are ready. If they need experience, it’s here. This is no joke. America has no high-speed trains, but we do,” Yıldırım told officials of his ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) in Ankara on Jan. 25.
“Nobody should see Turkey with different eyes. The opening of the Berlin Airport was recently postponed for the sixth time, while we are set to make the opening of the first phase of the world’s largest airport on Feb. 26, 2018,” he added.
One of Trump’s signature vows during the presidential campaign was to kick-start an extensive infrastructure renewal project in the U.S.
