MESSAGE Recep Tayyip ERDOĞAN President of Türkiye


My Dear Nation…
I greet you with my most heartfelt feelings, affection, and respect. Today, we altogether feel the pride and the enthusiasm of celebrating the 99th anniversary of the foundation of the Republic of Türkiye.

I congratulate the 29th October Republic Day of each and every one of our citizens in 81 provinces of our country and millions of our citizens in all corners of the world.

I also wish to express my gratitude to our friends who share our joy of celebration in our missions abroad, on behalf of myself, my country, and my nation.

On this occasion, I commemorate with gratitude once again Ghazi Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, the founder of our Republic, alongside our heroes who crowned our War of Independence with victory, and the patriotic members of the Grand National Assembly.

I wish the mercy of Allah upon our holy martyrs who lost their lives, as if they were stepping into a rosary for the sake of our independence, and I commemorate our veterans with gratitude.

We pursue our uninterrupted struggle to elevate the Republic of Türkiye, which we founded by paying heavy sacrifices 99 years ago under very difficult conditions, “above the level of contemporary civilizations”.

Thanks to the democracy and development revolutions, which we have achieved in the last 20 years, we removed not only the obstacles raised before the national will, but also the thick walls placed between the people and the Republic.

We transformed Türkiye into a country with an exemplary democracy, an impressive economy, whose diplomacy is followed with interest, and which preserves its national unity and brotherhood in the strongest way possible, despite all attempts of sabotage.

It is a fact that Türkiye, whose struggle for independence was a beacon of inspiration to the oppressed people a century ago, remains within the range of the eye and hearts.

At a time when global uncertainties are on the rise, our efforts towards establishing peace, stability, and justice, are appreciated by all.

We strive to set up a peace and prosperity zone around us through our entrepreneurial and humanitarian foreign policy, from ending the humanitarian tragedy in Syria to finding a solution to the Russia-Ukraine crisis.

As the country which provides the highest amount of humanitarian aid in proportion to its national income, we run to the rescue of all oppressed, victimized, and needy persons, regardless of their origin, belief, and differences.

While we reinforce the standing and importance of our country on a global scale, we incessantly pursue investment and development efforts in our country.

Natural gas that we have discovered in the Black Sea, and for which we spend efforts night and day to bring it to our homes, has opened new avenues for us in the field of energy.

We have reached the capacity of designing, developing, producing, and exporting our own products in the field of defence industry.

We compete with ourselves in every field, from agriculture to tourism, from transport to education and health, and we constantly raise the bar higher for success.

ew days ago, we laid the foundation for the bigzgest social housing project of our history, which will meet the housing and land demands of approximately six million citizens.

On 29 October, we will be holding a celebration, as the first ever domestic and national electric car of our country, TOGG, will come off the production line.

Despite all the obstacles and injustices we endure, we lay the foundations of our vision for 2053 and 2071, with the precision of a chess master.

We are determined to build the “Türkiye Century” upon the infrastructure of works and services we have provided to our country. May Allah clear our path and destiny.

With these thoughts, I would like to congratulate our 29 October Republic Day once again and wish our nation health, serenity, and well-being.

May the souls of our martyrs rest in peace! Happy 99th anniversary to our Republic!
With my best wishes…

Recep Tayyip ERDOĞAN
President of Türkiye
