Over the past decades, the Turkish Armed Forces and the country’s military-industrial complex have made a huge leap forward in their development.
This was stated by President Recep Tayyip Erdogan at the graduation ceremony for graduates of the Naval and Air Force Academy at the National Defense University.
“The Turkish Armed Forces, thanks to a new vision, including a change in the training model, have reached a position that is admired throughout the world,” the Turkish leader said.
According to him, Turkey has become a country capable of producing various products of the defense industry, including tanks, artillery installations, missiles, radars, bombs and rifles, which are superior to foreign counterparts.
“The successful use of Turkish attack UAVs in many conflict zones from Syria to Karabakh, as well as in the fight against terrorism, is on the lips of the whole world today,” the head of state said.
President Erdogan reiterated the futility of the intentions of certain circles to hinder the successful development of Turkey. “No one can interfere with the construction of a great and powerful Turkey, which has become a symbol of 2023, the 100th anniversary of our republic,” he said.
According to the president, the aim of attempts to destabilize the country, disrupt the unity of the Turkish people, weaken the power and tarnish the reputation of the Turkish state is to “take Turkey out of the game” again.
