President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan addressed the 6th Provincial Congress of the ruling Justice and Development (AK) Party in Sakarya province.
Erdoğan underlined Turkey’s fight for a world where no one is marginalized or subjected to oppression and persecution, and continued:
“We have no eye on any country’s territory. We have never adopted a hostile attitude towards our neighbors or other countries. We do not want to harm our relations with any country."
"We are not intruders. We are just pursuing the terrorists who bear hostility towards our country. We are pursuing those terrorists now in Afrin with our troops, gendarmerie, security forces as well as the Free Syrian Army.”
