President Erdoğan: Turkey has the power, capability and determination to overcome all problems

President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan issued a message marking 96th anniversary of the proclamation of the Republic of Turkey.

In his message, the President said:

“I would like to congratulate the Republic Day of our citizens, who live in 81 provinces of our country and abroad. I thank to all our friends who share the joy of this very important milestone of our history with us. Happy 96th anniversary for the proclamation of our Republic!”


“I remember with respect all our heroes, to start with Ghazi Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, who contributed to the victory in our Independence War with a century-old glorious past and to the foundation of our new state. Turkey is a country that has maintained its struggle for independence from beginning till the end through the National Assembly, which represents the national will. I would like to express my gratitude to all the deputies who have worked for the development, strengthening and progress of our country so far from our Grand National Assembly, which will celebrate its 100th anniversary next year. I wish Allah’s mercy upon our martyrs who paid the price so that we could live in the most favorite and disputed geographical area of the world for a thousand years,” read the message.

“As a nation and as a state, we have been in a historic struggle again in recent years in order to protect our existence and our future. All the events we have experienced such as the attacks of terrorist organizations, the treacherous coup attempt of July 15th and others are manifestations of this historical struggle. Operation Euphrates Shield, Operation Olive Branch and Operation Peace Spring, which we have conducted in Syria, are also parts of this struggle. We are conducting a struggle similar to our Independence War, which we started a century ago and crowned by establishing our new Republic, with different images and methods. All kinds of plots and mischief aimed at disrupting our national unity and solidarity are displayed. The security of our borders, our economy and similar important issues are under multi-faceted attacks which target our sovereignty and continue uninterrupted,” President Erdoğan said.

President Erdoğan underlined the following in his message: “Turkey, with its long history, its deeply rooted governing experience and almost century-long accumulations as a Republic, has the power, capability and determination to overcome all these problems. As a matter of fact, with the help of Allah, with the support of our nation, we foiled all the traps set against our country one by one.”

“I sincerely believe that we will successfully conclude this important process as well, in accordance with the vision of those who left our Republic to us as a legacy. By bringing our country to its 2023 goals, we will give the next generations the opportunity to fulfill their 2053 and 2071 visions.”

President Erdoğan ended his message as follows: “Hopefully, we will move our Republic forward in a much stronger and more prosperous manner. May Allah’s compassion and mercy be upon us. With these feelings, I congratulate once again the 96th anniversary of the Proclamation of our Republic. May you be blessed with good health.”
