Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that his country always adheres to its sovereign rights, and will never submit to anyone.
This came in his speech, today, Saturday, during his participation, via video call from Waheed al Din Palace in Istanbul, in the opening of the sixth section of the “North Marmara” highway, which connects the states of Istanbul, Kocaeli and Sakarya, according to the Turkish Anadolu News Agency.
President Erdogan affirmed Ankara’s adherence to its rights, saying: “We are determined to prove to everyone that Turkey is a country that does not hesitate to use its sovereign rights at all, and that our hearts and our doors are open to anyone who wants dialogue and agreement with us on fair grounds”.
Erdogan added: “As I say to everyone who seeks to subjugate Turkey by using the language of threats, sanctions, hypocrisy, plots and tricks, we will always disappoint you”.
Erdogan indicated that Turkey has become more attractive to foreign investors as the necessary infrastructure continues to be established for the country to be stronger and more prosperous.
Erdogan explained that Turkey’s attracting international investments worth 220 billion dollars, to date, is the best example of this.
The Turkish president stressed that “the stronger the political and economic independence of our country, the more easily we will overcome the obstacles that encounter us”.
He pointed out that the parties without naming them never hesitated to try to block the road to Turkey, through various means, such as supporting terrorist organizations, coup attempts, and sanctions, but they always failed to reach their goals.
The Turkish President affirmed to continue moving forward towards Turkey’s desired goals with the support of the citizens, pointing out that the relations of unity, brotherhood and cooperation among the people are the greatest source of strength for his government in this way.
In another context, Erdogan drew attention to the deaths of 9 victims, following a fire in a private hospital in the Turkish state of Gaziantep, offering condolences to the families of the victims, and wishing a speedy recovery for the injured.
