Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Monday said that ten years ago guns were blazing in the east of Turkey, but today people in the region enjoy the fruits from investments the government carried out.
Erdogan, at the local elections rally in Turkey's eastern city Mus, noted that this was the 25th meeting that he held in Mus during his eleven years of office.
He also underlined the government's effort in the solution process of the Kurdish issue and said that his Justice and Development (AK) Party opened the gate for education in Kurdish dialects in schools.
"We are trying to build a new Turkey in which all ethnic and religious groups, Alewite, Sunni, Turks and Kurds, are united," Erdogan said.
Slamming the December 17 anti-graft operations against the AK Party government, Erdogan in reference to the US based scholar Fethullah Gulen and the opposition in Turkey said: "Those who plotted the December 17 operations enjoyed the idea that government would be toppled but their joy lasted only for one day then they saw that the government could not be toppled by fabricated recordings or wiretappings."Last Mod: 11 Mart 2014, 09:26
