Turkey made important and successful initiatives towards stability in its region, said Robert Zoellick in a statement issued on Monday within the frame of World Bank- International Monetary Fund (IMF) autumn meetings.
"Turkey is important for the economic and political stability of its region" he added.
Turkey is expected to utilize World Bank loans worth $6.2 billion in 2008-2011 and according to the World Bank, receives the highest amount of program loans compared to other countries.
Sources told that there was a possibility that Turkey might join the new G-7 countries.
Zoellick recently said that other countries that might join the new G-7 countries were China, India, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Brazil, Mexico and South Africa.
"The new G-7 countries should converge from time to time and try to find solutions to global economic problems in cooperation with the IMF and World Bank," Zoellick earlier said.
