Baku, Azerbaijan, Mar. 28
By Rufiz Hafizoglu – Trend:
The West fears a strong Turkey, which acts solely in its own interests, said Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Trend reports referring to the Turkish media.
The head of state noted that the problems faced by Turkey are artificial and are created by a number of countries interested in weakening Turkey.
"In the coming years, Turkey will further strengthen its economy and military power," said Erdogan.
The president also said that Turkey is no longer a country that can be manipulated from the outside.
Erdogan stated that one of the main problems Turkey currently has to face is linked with the threat of terror, against which an active struggle is being waged.
"The threat of terrorism has led to investors not making investments in a number of southeastern provinces of the country," he said.
The president concluded that soon Turkey will solve the problem of terrorism in the country once and for all.
