President Tayyip Erdogan said that Turkey alone could not bear the burden of Syrian refugees and added: “We have not received the necessary support from the world, especially the European Union. You’ll give your support, otherwise, this trip could take us to different places. What’s the different place? If there is no safe zone we will have to open the doors,” he said. Erdogan said they aimed to resettle at least 1 million refugees in the ‘safe zone’ that would be created.

The president and AK Party leader Tayyip Erdogan reiterated his proposal to build homes at a depth of 30km to accommodate refugees. “There are 3 million 650 thousand Syrians in Turkey right now, ” he said, adding that Turkey is under threat from Idlib alongside refugees from Afghanistan and Syria. Our safe zone offer is a very good one. If it’s good, let’s get the houses built. Give us logistical support. If it’s a good offer, let’s start with it, but no. This trip could lead us to a different place. What’s a different place, we’ll have to open the doors soon enough. If you’re going to support, do it. And if not, you’ll have to excuse me. Are we the only ones to bear the burden? We couldn’t get support from the world, especially from the EU,” he said.

In his speech at the AK Party provincial presidents’ meeting, Erdogan also gave several messages aimed at the names whose expulsion process was initiated from his party. Erdogan’s speech featured the following headlines:

Our number of members is over 10 million

More than 95 percent of our number of members due to the death of 290 thousand people we have seen the decrease. Within the framework of the preparations for the Congress, the renewal of the delegates lists needs to be done at the district and provincial congresses. Our party has over 10 million members.

Those whose arrogance exceeds their height: we have not sacrificed the labor of the litigants who serve across the country to the whims of those whose arrogance exceeds their height, nor will we. We will not exclude any of our friends who have served our party. We will arbitrate our staff with new names and new values.

The first hit to the Yenikapi spirit came from the CHP: the first hit to the Yenikapi spirit was struck by the CHP leader personally with the controlled coup rhetoric. He attacked the state of emergency practice. This party tried to weaken the fight against FETÖ. While there was a place in the ranks of the nation, the CHP team always preferred to walk the road with the enemies of the National will. In the face of the unprincipled CHP, we have moved the cooperation we have started with the MHP in Yenikapı to a new phase.

There is no turning back from the system: there is no turning back from the presidential government system, whether the CHP and its partners digress into it or not. There may also be some shortcomings in the presidential system of government resulting from implementation. Through extensive work, we have identified all the deficiencies and revealed solutions. We found that most of the problem areas were due to the application. We will share these results soon.

– Our 3rd Drilling Ship May Arrive in Cyprus: In the Eastern Mediterranean, we do not care about their words. We care about ours. Our ships are in the area. Our descendants here in Northern Cyprus have rights. As a guarantor country, we have a say. It is a possibility that our 3rd drilling ship arrives soon. Threats of sanctions against our country will not make us back down. The reason of questioning our presence in the Middle East is obvious. We’ll show them the reason of our presence.

ARE WE THE ONLY ONES TO BEAR THE BURDEN?: The number of Syrians going to safe areas reached 350 thousand. We say that we should create such a safe zone that we have tent cities here in Turkey, let’s make housing. Let’s get these over here to the safe zone. We plan to place at least 1 million of our Syrian brothers in the safe zone that we will create along the border. Let’s create such a safe zone-we talked about it with Trump, Putin, Merkel – let’s make it housing, let’s move there, in such a situation we as Turkey would be relieved. If we do this, we will be relieved as Turkey. Our safe zone offer is a very good one. If it’s good, let’s get the houses built. Give us logistical support, let us build these dwellings at a depth of 30 kilometers in northern Syria. So we can give them the opportunity to live humanely. If it’s a good offer, let’s start with it, but no. We’ll keep chasing. This trip could lead us to a different place. What’s a different place, we’ll have to open the doors soon enough. If you’re going to support, do it. And if not, you’ll have to excuse me. Are we the only ones to bear the burden? We did not get support from the world, especially from the EU.

Idlib Threat: Developments in Idlib have exposed a new danger of asylum seekers. Without a safe zone, we’ll have to open the gates.

We will launch the safe zone ourselves: We are determined to initiate the formation of the safe zone east of the Euphrates in our own way by the last week of September.
