Quotes from the news wire:
If the violence toward the people of Idlib does not stop, this number will increase even more. In that case, Turkey will not carry such a migrant burden on its own, the negative impact of the pressure we will be subjected to will be something that all European nations, especially Greece, will also feel.
We are saying we should form such a safe zone that we, as Turkey, can build towns here in lieu of the tent cities here. Let's carry them to the safe zones there, give us logistical support and we can go build housing at 30 km (20 miles) depth in northern Syria. This way, we can provide them with humanitarian living conditions.
They will hold the president accountable. Since they will ask the president about it, we have to give off the image of a president who is effective in monetary policies, this may make some uncomfortable. But we have to do it. Because it's those who rule the state who are accountable to the citizens.
The state of emergency only affects terrorists. Now it's preventing labor strikes, such as the Bursa strike, which we stopped right away. It's a struggle against terrorism, when our business people say the state of emergency should be lifted, it upsets us... We will continue extending it for the peace of our country, yes we will, for the 10th time if necessary.
Using sacred Islam's name, exploiting it, this terrorist group which spills Muslim blood has gone as far as attacking the town where the mosque and blessed remains of our Prophet are located, daesh is a dagger plunged into the chest of Muslims.

Shame on you. It's clear where Turkey buys its oil and gas ... Those who claim we are buying oil from Daesh like this must prove their claims. Nobody can slander this country, if you are seeking the source of weaponry and financial power of Daesh, the first place to look is the Assad regime and countries that act with it.
If a NATO member country comes under attack, NATO would support it in every way, at the moment, Turkey has come under attack and is exercising its right to defend itself and will exercise this right until the end... but what we're saying is that there could be a duty for NATO, and we ask NATO to be prepared for this.
We're still discussing 4G, but I'm thinking, the world is talking about 5G. Therefore we don't need to lose time with 4G. Let's be a patient a little while longer with 3G, within two years Turkey will be on 5G. Otherwise, it will be a garbage dump with 4G. Let's be patient and jump from 3G to 5G. Can we do this? We definitely can.
