President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said the Turkish economy is experiencing a "very strong recovery."

This came during a press conference on Monday, following a cabinet meeting at the Presidential Complex in Ankara.

Erdogan stressed that Turkey is one of the countries that will shine its star in the post-Corona world.

"We aim to zero out the number of casualties and deaths in Corona, and we are determined to keep our country out of danger," he said.

"The first data for June show that our economy is experiencing a very strong recovery process," he said.

"The growth of our economy 4.5 percent in the first quarter of 2020 is the biggest sign of its strength and potential."

On the other hand, President Erdogan pointed out that Iraq, turkey's neighbor, has become one of the countries most affected by Corona in recent times.

"On Tuesday, we will send a shipment of aid to our Iraqi brothers, primarily Turkmens living in Iraq," he said.

Erdogan said the shipment includes various necessary supplies in the fight against Corona, from muzzles and protective clothing to respirators and medicines.

Through this step, Turkey is once again demonstrating its support for its neighbours, friends and brothers, he said.

He stressed that Turkey's success in combating Corona internally was not enough, but that the same success must be achieved in its surroundings as well as the world as a whole.

"Given the global landscape with regard to Corona, we see that the Region of Europe, which also includes Turkey, has been able to control the pandemic to a large extent, while the virus is spreading in Asia and North and South America at an accelerated pace," Erdogan said.
