President #Erdogan’s words were unfortunately taken out of context. He was responding to the so-called ‘manifesto’ of the terrorist who killed 50 innocent Muslims in Christchurch, NewZealand. Turks have always been the most welcoming & gracious hosts to their #Anzac visitors.
The terrorist’s manifesto not only targeted Erdogan himself but also the Turkish people and the Turkish state. As he was giving the speech at the Canakkale (Gallipoli) commemoration, he framed his remarks in a historical context of attacks against Turkey, past and present.
Within the context of what I explained below, here is the translation of what @rt_erdogan actually said: ImageImage

Türkiye under our President Erdogan’s leadership showed once again the importance of persistent diplomacy in confronting challenges facing the international community. The deal signed today will ease the global food crisis by allowing much-needed grain exports.
As President Erdogan indicated, this agreement will prevent famine and save lives around the world. We worked closely with Ukrainian and Russian sides as well as the UN to broker this deal, which shows our commitment to address global challenges through diplomacy.
Türkiye has long been a major actor in the international arena thanks to President Erdogan’s leadership. We continue to work hard to solve the current regional and global crises such as food security, migration, energy shortages, and regional conflicts among others.

One thing is common about the states that accuse our nation of so-called “genocide”: They all incited violence and sponsored terror groups against the Ottoman Empire in its last years.
These nations planned to instill hatred among various ethnic and religious groups within the Ottoman Empire but to no avail. Their efforts were meant to create internal divisions to bring down the empire from within.
These nations systematically denied rights of their own minorities. Their provocations and sabotage efforts against the multiethnic and multicultural diversity in the Ottoman Empire were part of their strategy to reject the aspirations of their own minorities.

1915 olayları hakkında milletimize ve tarihimize yönelik bir iftirayı Türkiye Büyük Millet Meclisinde kanun teklifi diye sunmak gaflet, dalalet ve hatta hıyanettir. Tarihsel gerçeklikten yoksun, uluslararası hukuk nezdinde geçersiz bu bühtanı reddediyoruz ve hükümsüz addediyoruz.
Bu kabul edilemez girişim her gayrimeşru fırsatı ülkemize besledikleri husumet için kullanmaya çalışanların birliğimize, beraberliğimize saldırısından başka bir şey değildir. Bu saldırının Gazi Meclis çatısı altında yapılması ise karşımızdaki vahametin ciddiyetini göstermektedir.
Türk devleti ve milleti bu ahlaksızlığın karşısında duracak, bu hadsizliğe hukuki çerçevede gereken cevabı verecektir. İçine düştükleri aymazlıkla emperyal hesapların maşası olanlar, bir kez daha hezimete uğrayacaklardır.

Türkiye continues to assume an active role in the resolution of global crises and ending regional conflicts. Türkiye always seeks to provide a roadmap toward building a sustainable global system in the service of peace and stability.
Our country under the leadership of @RTErdogan is a stabilizing power in its region and around the world. In line with this vision, Türkiye is once again doing everything in its power to end the Russia-Ukraine war through effective diplomacy.
President Erdogan has been conducting meetings directly with the Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy and Russian President Vladimir Putin since the first day of the crisis.

We are witnessing yet another war in our region. President Erdogan has offered to mediate between Russia and Ukraine as we have strong relations with both countries. He also called for a unified stance on the part of the allies.
As Türkiye, we have done everything we can to prevent this at the diplomatic level. Our calls to reform the UN system have fallen on deaf ears and we have seen the dire consequences in this latest crisis. This war could have been prevented if our calls were heeded.
We have repeatedly called for a diplomatic solution, but the war is a reality right now. The international community’s lack of unity over a number of regional and global issues has been a major problem just like it has over the Russia-Ukraine crisis.

La France prétend se baser sur les principes de liberté, d'égalité et de fraternité.
Cependant elle accroît l'ingérence dans le mode de vie des minorités religieuses par le projet de loi "confortant le respect des principes de la République", voté à l'Assemblée nationale.
Cette initiative visant à placer les minorités religieuses sous contrôle marginalisera davantage les musulmans.
Cette nouvelle loi totalement contraire aux pseudos "prin. fondamentaux" de la FR, "légalise" l'islamophobie et restreint les libertés des minorités religieuses.
De grandes responsabilités incombent aux États en cette période où les attaques contre les musulmans en Europe connaissent une hausse.
