Our nation already knows very well that under the leadership of our Honorable President, our country is taking firm steps towards becoming a global power, and that it has not allowed any sneaky and dirty attacks, secretly and openly, from inside and outside, without letting any of it pass. Today, the power that brought giant city hospitals equipped with the latest technology, UAVs, SİHAs, warplanes, TOGGs, satellites, Black Sea natural gas, TCG Anadolu, Akkuyu Nuclear Power Plant and many other centuries-old works to our country, Under the leadership of our President, the AK Party has been in power.
