ANKARA (Turkey): Drawing attention to increasing number of attacks Turkey is faced with, Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan noted, Monday, “That is so, because with the moves it has made, Turkey is shaking up a century-old order built on oppression and exploitation” lashing “The maps drawn at tables in other parts of the world can no longer be implemented in our region.”

According to a press release, the Turkish president, being the chairman of justice and development (AK) party, was addressing via videoconference AK party’s provincial congresses in Adıyaman, Aydın, Bingöl, Bitlis, Elazığ, Kilis, Manisa, Mardin and Muş.

Stating that Turkey is carrying out the necessary reforms and implementing the policies it has developed for a great leap forward in economy, Turkish president Erdoğan said, “We are mobilising our country’s potential with an approach based on investment, production, growth, employment and export.”

He continued, “In addition to this, we are laying the groundwork for a historic transformation outside our borders” declaring “We have shown our determination to the entire world in this regard thanks to the strong will we have displayed on critical matters, from the Eastern Mediterranean to Karabakh.”

Turkish president Erdoğan warned, “The plans prepared behind closed doors can no longer be put into action in our region at the cost of the blood of the innocent” highlighting “Civil wars can no longer be ignited easily or terrorist acts can no longer be fuelled in our region in order for the natural resources to be easily looted” declaring “Countries can no longer be put under pressure in our region by turning small conflicts into quagmires.”

He concluded, “Is it possible for a country that foils this order not to be targeted? You will see this very pain if you take a look behind all the materials used in the campaigns carried out against Turkey.”
