Access to adequate food is “not a privilege, but a right for all”. This was stated by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, addressing the participants in a videoconference organized in the format of the 76th session of the UN General Assembly on the Food Systems Summit.
“Our shared responsibility is to pass on a more just, livable and peaceful world to our children,” President Erdogan said.
The head of state assured that “Turkey will continue to make resolute efforts in this direction.”
The Turkish leader pointed out that the impact of climate change, frequent and devastating natural disasters, lack of water resources, poverty and drought also negatively affect access to food sources.
“The value of food systems has increased in a way that makes it difficult to access food sources, and as a result, compromised food security paves the way for mass migration, which is one of the most serious problems of our time,” he added.
