    Turkey is one of the biggest investors in Somalia's future and also military. Turkey have a military training base there and at the moment maybe the future Somalian officers which will bring their armed forces on their feet are training in Turkey. From where the Turkish soldier have crossed there is a Turkish flag on that place. Many Turkish flags also in Afghanistan, Kosovo and Bosnia.

    The people of Somalia love Turkish people, in general. You can feel this very clearly in Mogadishu.

    Of course, we love them too.

    THY is the only airline with scheduled flights to Mogadishu. We try to help our Somali brothers and sisters with many institutes about agriculture and livestock. We opened one of Africa's largest important children's hospitals in Mogadishu. We rebuilt the international port. We built the airport international terminal. Both the infrastructure and the social areas, an active cooperation existing .

    In addition, Turkey's largest cross-border military base here. TAF undertook all the training of the establishing new Somali army. thousands of NCO and the officers have graduated from Turkey-Somali military facilities . These people will be able to protect their own country soon, without needing the support of another country.

    So there are many reasons for these our brothers which are carrying the flag of Turkey.

    If these people were not left to starvation and endless civil war and extinction, the world maritime trade would not have a problem with the Somalians who had been pirating with wooden and zodiac boats.

    Somalia is considered one of the worst places on earth today. Compared to that country, even the Indian Subcontinent feels itself privileged irrespective of what poverty we have here in each of our respective countries.

    But despite all these setbacks, this man actually tried to build something with his hands, with his limited knowledge and with his limited resources. For that sense of vision and drive, I will salute and respect him. I cannot speak for Pakistan or other countries, but if my government agencies had a hundredth of the drive that this one poor mechanic is having, we won't be importing military equipment.

    I wish this man and his vision for a strong Somalia loads of luck. If there are more Somalis like him, there is nothing that can stop them to rise from the ashes and emerge once again as a respectable, developed and peaceful country.

    You are doing a good work, buddy.

    Somalia is one country I think about some times; everyone calls it the hell on earth, bla bla etc.

    But no one thinks of going there and helping them out to emerge as normal people; they are also humans.

    Much respect to Turkey for giving a hand to the needy ones. May you succeed in restoring peace in that country.

    Man you must stop such somali mechanics or soon they will put your defense industry into danger :sarcastic:
    Dude i am sure the press TV was trolling i am sure :lol:
    Man how can we call that a tank in any way seriously?A tank is no longer a tank if it cannot protect the inside crew from all incoming bullets.That thing is driving on a Toyota wheels and a think metal ,even a 9mm pistol bullet can penetrate and stop that thing.And everyone with a basic welding knowledge can weld a pipe with a metal and call it a turret lol and actually it can fire nothing because there is no ammo loading system.And with such a invention he is comparing somalia with the russian tanks LMAO.Either he never seen himself a actual tank in his life or he is just another black dude feeling on top of the world and really think he is some one in a million cool guy.
    That guy has all the right to progress in life but first at least he should know what a tank is and what purpose it fulfills.But still the tank he made is very cost effective with no ammo needed because it can kill the incoming enemy with laughter :rofl:

    Pakistan has a pretty good relationship with Somalia as well.

    We sent many peacekeepers there, and are the few which are trusted by all Somalis, along with Turks.
