President Recep Tayyip Erdogan shared a message on October 29, Republic Day. In the Video message, President Erdogan used striking statements. “Just as the founding will of our Republic saved this country from occupation by disrupting the plans of the seven heifers, we are determined to achieve our goals in the same way,” Erdogan said.

Erdogan said in his message:

I congratulate our citizens living in our country and abroad on October 29, the day of the Republic. I express my heartfelt gratitude to all our friends who have shared our joy on Republic Day.

On the 97th anniversary of the declaration of our republic, I commemorate all the heroes of our war of independence and the Banis of our Republic, Gazi Mustafa Kemal Ataturk. From the victory of Malazgirt to the counterterrorism operations that we continue today on many fronts, I remember with mercy and gratitude all our heroes who have been honored with martyrdom and veterans to protect our homeland for a thousand years.

I pay my respects to the Grand National Assembly of Turkey, which personally led our war of independence, which once again received the title of Gazi with its glorious resistance to the coup d’etat on the night of July 15, the manifestation of national will. At a time when we are preparing to celebrate the 100th anniversary of our republic with enthusiasm, we are also continuing our path in determination to achieve our 2023 goals. Turkey is a country that has continued its struggle for democracy and development by overcoming many obstacles, from a one-party dictator to coups, from the attack of tutelage to the fight against terrorism. The difficulties we face in this long and difficult process have sharpened our determination, on the contrary, to turn our nation away from the cause of independence and future. Our nation, which has clamped from seven to seventy in the struggle for liberation leading to the establishment of our republic, is one heart and one fist, today it is building its future in unity, togetherness and brotherhood.

As we approach our goals, the frontline of attacks on our country expands, increasing in number and dose. One by one, we are unleashing this wave of attacks, ranging from diplomacy to the economy and our values, with the power we receive from our nation. The words and actions of those who are uncomfortable with the fact that Turkey, which in the past has constantly set a direction with very small interventions, is acting of its own free will, no longer have any provisions.

Our country will continue to act according to its own vision, its own agenda, regardless of who says what and does what. Just as the founding will of our Republic saved this country from invasion by disrupting the plans of the seven heifers, we are determined to achieve our goals in the same way.

Today, we are much stronger, much more resilient, much more faithful in all respects than we were 20 years ago. I hope that when we reach our 2023 goals, we will start a whole new era in our region and around the world. As the echoes of our call for ‘the world is greater than 5’, which we point to the distortions of the global system, are gradually expanding, we are walking with much greater hope into the peaceful and prosperous future that we dream of with our friends. I once again congratulate the 97th anniversary of the founding of our republic with these feelings.”
