At a news conference in Istanbul before starting his tour, Erdoğan said that Türkiye's relations with the UAE are developing in every area, adding: "The UAE is the country with whom we recently trade the most in the Gulf region. We want to increase this figure to a level befitting the true potential of our two countries."
