Gülten EKİNCİ

Our military must be strong in order to protect this beautiful country and and to keep the peace both in our homeland and also on our borders. If our deterrent force becomes strong, living in tranquility and peace will be easier. We need to produce our weapons by ourselves without being dependent on foreign states. Indeed, during Cyprus peace operation, some states from which we used to buy weapons did not give us some permits several times and they shackled us. Afterwards the Turkish Armed Forces Foundation was founded. Since that time we have reached the position of producing our many strategic weapons, our aircrafts, our F16s, our unmanned air vehicles and our armored vehicles by ourselves. Indeed we must strengthen our army as a nation. The stronger our army is, the less number of martyrs we have by the help of technological weapons. Our military success will be much stronger and our country will be peaceful.
