Highlights from Erdogan’s statements:
I greet you with my most heartfelt feelings. From here, I wholeheartedly greet all corners of our heartland, the Balkans of Rumelia. I send my love and respect to all our brothers and sisters whose hearts beat with us. Today I hear the voices of our Raiders, who have stood at the gates of Vienna for centuries. Today I hear the delicate flapping of the wings of Rumelian folk songs.
We also have half of us all over Rumelia. We have many brothers and sisters in 3 continents and 7 climates with whom our hearts are one. I see Türkiye lovers in front of me.
I would like to thank you for your love, which showed the result of the ballot box on 28 May. What beautiful people you are. What loyal people you are. I say God bless our love forever.
My brothers, we are a state that inherited the flag of independence and future from the Ottomans. The Republic of Türkiye is the state of the people who have been struggling on these lands for a thousand years.
Erdoğan talked about his last memory with Aliya İzzetbegovic
I visited Aliya in her last days. His last sentence was very revealing. She said, “My son, Tayyip, these lands are his sons of Fatihan. These lands are entrusted to you.” I heard from his son he said: “My father wasn’t talking until he saw you”
We will continue to view them as a trust.
We wrote an epic in Çanakkale for our brothers who made Anatolia their homeland. We crowned our War of Independence with victory under the leadership of Ghazi Mustafa Kemal, himself a Rumelian. Our Circassian brothers, who were exiled from their homeland, Crimean Tatars, Meskhetian Turks, Rumelian immigrants, and our brothers living in peace in the Ottoman Empire, took refuge in the lands of the Republic as a last resort. We worked together as a nation to strengthen our economy. We have brought Turkey to what it is today, by enduring many attacks, both bitter and sweet. We did it together as a nation.
Our brothers coming from Western Thrace, Bulgaria and the Balkans are not immigrants of this country, but their original children. Your grandfathers and ancestors did not come to other places but to their father’s house. We hugged and hugged each other. The most brutal massacres were committed in places where we had to withdraw. Their language and beliefs were tried to be destroyed. The doors of their lodges were locked. Inns, baths, fountains were deliberately neglected. They experienced everything in the name of cultural genocide. In cities that were home to thousands of works 150 years ago, you can’t find anything but a few examples today. The western world did not see this, it ignored it. They even chose to watch the genocides in which thousands of people were massacred in the most recent Bosnian War.
Attack on Turkevi in the USA
The PKK in Europe saw that the business is getting worse, it started to attack the voters. It wasn’t enough, they attacked the Turkevi in the USA, you were a democrat? Aren’t we going to say this to the US security forces from here? You need to find this terrorist right now, and you have to do what is necessary. What would you do if a similar situation happened in Turkey? If something happens to our nation anywhere tomorrow, rest assured, they will not behave differently. We are ready to do whatever is necessary.
