“Those who look into the eyes of the West to call those who shamefully martyred our police, soldiers and civilians are terrorists, do not know. Now, there is a Turkey that is making the world narrow for terrorist organizations with its political, diplomatic and military moves. Here is the story of a strong Turkey on the field and at the table. Our country is located on three continents. Despite its geopolitics at the heart of it, it was ruled with a uniaxial foreign policy for years.We put an end to the wimpy mentality that blindly surrendered his brothers to their murderers in the Boraltan Bridge disaster.With the efforts of our diplomats, we implemented a self-confident, enterprising and humanitarian foreign policy practice.


By increasing the number of our foreign representatives from 163 to 260, we became one of the 5 countries with the largest diplomatic network in the world. With TIKA, YTB, Yunus Emre Institute, and Maarif Foundation, we welcome our compatriots and 7 million people living abroad. We resolutely defend the rights of the Turkish Cypriots, the Turkish world and his Son Fatihan in the Balkans. We stand by our brothers with all our means when necessary, as in Libya, Syria, and Karabakh, which was liberated after 30 years of occupation. We contribute to the solution of regional crises with captive exchange and grain corridor agreements. As a state whose history is full of glorious victories, we are coming to the place we deserve in the international system.”
