Addressing citizens at Istanbul Atatürk Airport, President Erdoğan said: “What the Parallel State Structure is has fully been revealed as a result of their act yesterday evening after 17-25 December. As was seen, they showed blatant examples of a terrorist act. They are so despicable as to direct the weapons, bought with the means and money that belong to the nation and the poor, at this nation.”

Addressing hundreds of thousands of citizens that gathered in front of the Istanbul Atatürk Airport, President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan spoke as follows:

“THEY ARE SO DESPICABLE AS TO DIRECT WEAPONS AT THE NATION”

“What the Parallel State Structure is has fully been revealed as a result of their act yesterday evening after 17-25 December. As was seen, they showed blatant examples of a terrorist act. They are so despicable as to direct the weapons, bought with the means and money that belong to the nation and the poor, at this nation. Whom are they directing their weapons at? Where do these tanks shoot at? Have they bought the F-16 jets with their fathers’ money?”

Urging citizens not to disrupt their stance, President Erdoğan said: “I would especially like to use this expression. From the highest ranks of our army to the lowest rank, from the Chief of General Staff and force commanders to the rank and file, those who have become a tool constitute just a minority. In Turkey it is not the armed forces that administers the state, and neither can it. Now a government, which has come to the power through the national will, and a President that the nation has brought to the office with a 52-percent vote, are on duty.”

“YOUR STRENGTH WON’T SUFFICE TO STIR THIS COUNTRY”

President Erdoğan further stated: “Our only need is to believe in ourselves. There is nothing we cannot achieve as long as this heart beats and we stand firm against them. I am also calling on Pennsylvania. It is enough the betrayal you have done to this nation. Come to your homeland if you dare it. Your strength won’t suffice to stir the country from there.”

The President added: “Turkish Airlines has begun its flights. There is small distress in Ankara. It will also be overcome. There is no leaving here until this situation goes back to normal. I will not leave, too.”

In response to citizens’ slogans “Turkey is proud of you,” President Erdoğan said “We are proud of you.” Concluding his address by thanking citizens, President Erdoğan made an emphasis of “One nation, one flag, one homeland, one state,” at the end of his address.
