On Monday, October 29, 2018, The Republic of Turkey celebrated the 95th Anniversary of the Proclamation of the Republic of Turkey.

On this day, the Turkish nation pays gratitude to their First President, Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, and his brothers in arms who gifted that Republic to the nation.

Below is the Republic Day message of H.E. President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan read for him by H.E. Sedef Yavuzalp the Turkish Ambassador to Uganda during the commemoration at the their Embassy in Kampala, Uganda.

 “I congratulate the 29th October Republic Day of our citizens who live in our country and abroad, as well as all our friends sharing this day of pride with us. 

On the 95th anniversary of the proclamation of our Republic, I commemorate all our heroes, in particular Ghazi Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, who led our victory on the War of Liberation and spearheaded the foundation of our new state.

I express our gratitude to our Members of Parliament making efforts for the liberation, development, growth and strengthening of our country as the representatives of our national will, from the very First Assembly up until now.

I wish Allah’s mercy upon all our ancestors, martyrs and veterans who shed their blood and made great efforts for every inch of the Anatolian territory, our millennial motherland.

The sacred memory of the members of our security forces and citizens who lost their lives during the fight against terrorism and on July 15th will forever remain in our nation’s heart and maintain their place in the identity of our state.

I see each step we have taken towards an advanced democracy and a strong economy in our endeavours to elevate our country “above the level of contemporary civilizations” as a light kindled for our glorious future.

Our new airport, which we are inaugurating today in İstanbul, is one of these lights.

Inshallah, we will crown our great journey, starting from the Seljuk Empire to the Ottoman Empire and reaching the young Republic of Turkey in historical continuity, with our 2023 goals, and carry it to a higher level with our visions for 2053 and 2071.

Each development starting from our victory in the Battle of Manzikert and continuing with the other ones in Çanakkale, Kut’ul Amare, Dumlupınar and Cyprus during the last century, and our humanitarian stance in Syria, are the symbols of the noble stance of our nation. 

Each success of Turkey at the same time nurtures, boosts and catalyses the hopes in the hearts of the oppressed and victims in our region and all over the world, as well as in the common conscience of mankind.

It is for this reason that although it is the world’s 17th biggest economy, our country ranks first in humanitarian assistance relative to its national income,

Turkey has been the only country which has heartily welcomed asylum seekers and which rightly fulfils its humanitarian responsibilities, while everyone closed their doors and hearts to them.

It is quite an honour for us to make history as a nation that shares its home and bread with the oppressed, instead of turning its back on them, and always makes its choices in favour of equity and justice.

We will never make concessions from this stance, nor will we allow any obstacle, sabotage or design to prevent us from reaching our goals.

As we have reached the 95th anniversary of its foundation, we will continue to work with all our strength, to perpetuate the Republic of Turkey,

With these thoughts, I congratulate once again our 29th October  Republic Day.

H.E. Recep Tayyip ERDOĞAN,  President of the Republic of TURKEY”
