President Erdoğan made statements about the Islamic solidarity games after the Cabinet meeting. Erdoğan stated that “We have completed the preparations for the 5th Islamic Solidarity Games, which we will host in Konya between 9-18 August. For these games, 4,200 sportspeople and committee members from 56 countries and tens of thousands of sports fans will come to Konya. The facilities we have brought to Konya for the Islamic Solidarity Games will serve our youth in the city and will be used for similar organizations later on. I would like to welcome the convoys that we will host in our country for these games, which I believe will make a worldwide impact, and wish success to our sportspeople.
