ANKARA 

Turkey’s parliament speaker said Thursday that the world is seeking for new global platforms, with the parliamentary diplomacy getting the spotlight.

“Parliamentary diplomacy pioneers new quests for global platforms as the international organizations, especially the United Nations, have difficulties in fulfilling their objectives,” Mustafa Sentop said in Mexico city.

Sentop’s remarks came during his address of the 5th MIKTA Speakers’ Consultation meeting.

Established in 2013, MIKTA is an informal partnership consisting of Mexico, Indonesia, South Korea, Turkey and Australia.

Turkish official urged for more efforts to make MIKTA operate more efficiently.
