The statements of the President of Turkey Recep Erdogan leave no doubt that he is ready for any measures ahead of the elections, as well as in what he prepares the inhabitants of his country.
So, 2 a day ago, he said that his country acquired the defense industry and produces weapons (we are talking about ASELSAN) just because it is surrounded by "bad neighbors", it was about Greece and Cyprus. In his speech, Erdogan presented the real events of 1974 in Cyprus in a completely different way than they occurred, and, of course, turning in his favor.
In addition, he used Greece and Cyprus to attack the EU. He mentioned 400 billion granted to Greece, saying that when countries with oil or gas reserves meet problems, they are helped, of course, for a reward. When Turkey encounters difficulties, they turn away from it. But Turkey will cope with everything and does not need anyone.
At the Health Ministry event, the President of Turkey urged his country's citizens to prepare for the Third World War, explaining that the reason for the outbreak of war could be that the US is opening 20 new military bases in Syria. In his opinion, this is being done against Russia, especially since there are already Russian and Iranian troops in Syria. Erdogan called on the Turks to be ready for any development of events.
Another interesting news became known today. As reported by CNN, the planned for 19 March visit of the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Turkey Mevlut Cavusoglu to Washington is canceled. This was reported by the representative of the Ministry. The cancellation of the visit was made known after the resignation of Rex Tillerson, the US foreign secretary. The reason for canceling the visit is not reported. Cavusoglu himself yesterday, 14 March, said he hoped for a constructive relationship with the new US Foreign Secretary, Mike Pompeo. At the same time, Cavusoglu noted that the new American minister must be respected by Turkey, especially after the emergence of some tension in relations between the two countries due to Turkey's actions in Syria.
