Saudi Arabian King Abdullah's Visit To Turkey

BAYRAMOGLU: ``APPROACH OF KING ABDULLAH IS IMPORTANT FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF ECONOMIC RELATIONS``

ISTANBUL - ``The approach of King Abdullah is highly important for the development of economic relations,`` said Ali Bayramoglu, Chairman of the Turkish-Saudi Business Council, today.

In an exclusive interview with the AA, Bayramoglu indicated that the issue of converting high income from oil to investments in Turkey must be carefully considered. ``We also must focus on how we can make our bilateral trade balanced,`` told Bayramoglu.

Bayramoglu stressed that kingdom administration is quite different compared to democracies. ``In the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, what the king says is what matters. When the king makes a promise, that promise is fulfilled without any questioning by Saudi officials. Therefore, King Abdullah`s approach and his promises to be made in Turkey are very important,`` underlined Bayramoglu.
