Turkey will foil any attempts against its interests and goals, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Friday.
“We will foil every plot against Turkey’s interests, achievements and goals,” Erdogan told a campaign rally for local elections in the central province of Sivas.
“Our homeland, our flag, our state, our nation and our independence is our honor,” he said.
Erdogan held his first rally for the March 31 local elections in Sivas province.
Turkey is gearing up for the local polls, held every five years, with 13 political parties taking part this year.
