Closely following the Turkish president's ongoing visit to African countries, including Angola, Nigeria, and Togo, the French press on Tuesday praised Turkey's unmanned combat aerial vehicles, Yeni Safak reports. 

Featuring a story -- titled Erdogan strengthens his presence in Africa -- daily Le Figaro said Recep Tayyip Erdogan noticed the decreasing interest of colonial western powers in the African continent, after which he began to make his presence felt in Muslim African countries.

The story said Turkish Airlines had been the only major airline that operated flights to Mogadishu, the capital of Somalia, where the western powers conducted military operations in 1992-1994.

During his visit to Angola and Nigeria, Erdogan will also discuss exporting mainly the unmanned combat aerial vehicles, or UCAVs, to Africa as they can operate on four fronts, the story added.
