Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan stressed on Wednesday that his country “may give a delay, but it will not let treason and terrorism go unaccounted for.”
This came in a speech he delivered during an event held in the capital, Ankara, on the occasion of the 97th anniversary of the founding of the Turkish Intelligence Service (MİT).
President Erdogan said: “The Turkish Republic may give a delay, but it does not leave treason and terrorism without accountability.” He added: “Everyone accepts the fact that Turkey is strengthening day after day its position as an influential force and game maker on the global chessboard.”
He continued: “We courageously defend our nation’s interests, whether in the diplomatic or military field, by taking the right steps at the right time.”
He pointed out that “the Turkish intelligence service does not let terrorists catch their breath thanks to its extensive network of sources and advanced technological capabilities.”
