“They will All See What Our Nation Can Achieve Once It Asserts Its Power and Courage”

Speaking at the 45th Mukhtars Meeting at the Presidential Complex, President Erdoğan said: “No obstacle is greater than the will of Turkey and Turkish nation. They will all see what our nation can achieve once it asserts its power and courage.”


The 45th of the Mukhtars Meeting took place at the Presidential Complex. President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan addressed mukhtars hailing from 13 different provinces.

“OUR SOLDIERS ARE MAKING HISTORY WITH OPERATION OLIVE BRANCH IN AFRIN”

Mentioning that our soldiers are making history in Afrin, President Erdoğan noted that 1 028 terrorists have been neutralized so far in the operation.

Emphasizing that the active politics which Turkey has been following in the region disturbs many people inside and outside the country and criticizing European Parliament’s lawmakers who put the so-called flag of PKK on their necks, President Erdoğan said: “Whose rags are they? PKK’s. Whose? The top terrorist’s. How could they put its rags on their necks even though the European Union designated PKK as a terrorist organization?”

“ACCORDING TO THEM MANY COUNTRIES CAN BE IN SYRIA IN VARIOUS DISGUISES AND UNDER MANY PRETEXTS”

President Erdoğan continued his speech as follows: “We hear and see that some people ask us to immediately withdraw from Syrian territory. One, who hears this, would think that Syria is a bed of roses and the only thing that spoils it is Turkey’s existence there. According to them PKK can be in Syria, DAESH can be in Syria, the US, Russia, Iran, France, the UK and many other countries can be in Syria in various disguises and under many pretexts. Israel can launch an operation in Syria whenever it sees fit but Turkey cannot be in Syria with which it has a 911-kilometer border.”

“OUR INTENTION IS TO ENSURE THAT OUR 3.5 MILLION SYRIAN BROTHERS AND SISTERS SAFELY RETURN THEIR HOME”

President Erdoğan also said: “Sworn enemies become allies and form secret and open partnerships all of a sudden when it comes to Turkey. Turkey is doing everything today -partially or totally- despite all other powers. Today, Turkey survives thanks to the courage, determination and wisdom of our nation and the prayers of our friends.”

Underscoring that Assad has been terrorizing Syria and murdering so many people, President Erdoğan pointed out that their intention is to ensure that 3.5 million Syrian refugees safely return their home and invited the sincere ones to do this in Syria altogether.

“NO OBSTACLE IS GREATER THAN THE WILL OF TURKEY AND TURKISH NATION”

“No obstacle is greater than the will of Turkey and Turkish nation,” President Erdoğan underscored. Adding The US conducts the fight against DAESH terrorist organization through another terrorist organization, PYD and YPG, President Erdoğan continued as follows: “They said, ‘We did not approve what your generals said.’ They did not approve our generals but theirs. Yours are not telling the truth. We know this region. Therefore we know who is who. I told Mr. Trump, ‘You cannot eradicate terrorists with terrorists. You are wrong Mr. Trump.’ But unfortunately he again appealed to them. We said, ‘Fine, you go your way and we go our way.’”

Mentioning that they will all see what our nation can achieve once it asserts its power and courage, President Erdoğan noted that what has been done until now cannot even be counted as a warm-up lap and that the real big moves and the real big attacks will be made in the upcoming period.
