EU must discard pressure from Greece, Greek Cypriots, says Erdoğan
ANKARA- Anadolu Agency
It is extremely wrong for Turkey’s relations with the EU to be captive to the tricks of one or two states, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said in a video link address at the opening ceremony of the Manisa-Akhisar Highway in western Turkey.
At a separate event, the president said Turkey is preparing for reforms that will make the country a center of attraction again.
“With legal and administrative reforms, we aim to ensure Turkey’s place in the top 10 of the restructured global, political, and economic order,”
Erdoğan said in a video address at the inauguration of a dam in the southeastern Gaziantep province.
On the coronavirus pandemic, he said Turkey has completed preparations to get vaccines from other countries until its local COVID-19 vaccine is ready for rollout.
He reiterated that Turkey did not compromise on its health services and investments during a period when the whole world was affected by the pandemic.
Speaking about a new dam, he said it will help make the region between Gaziantep and Kilis one of the most important agricultural production centers ofTurkey.
Erdoğan said a logistics village to be set up on an area of 500hectares will give Gaziantep a dry port that will be connected to the seaports of southern Mersin and Iskenderun.
