During a graduation ceremony on Friday at Turkey’s National Defense University in Istanbul, Erdogan attracted attention the military for assisting “in the construction of a great and powerful Turkey,” claiming: “there is no threat that the army cannot overcome on land, at sea and in the air.”
“We will constantly be reborn and take further steps until we make the Turkish Armed Forces the number one in the world with all its elements, training, equipment, technology and experience,” Erdogan added.
Though he recognized “deficiencies and aspects that need improvement” in Ankara’s military training system, Erdogan noted the inaugural of the National Defense University in 2017 was a big change, which “completely changed” education and drilling for new troops.
