(MENAFN) Defense of a nation is wide-ranging which cannot just be started through army means, according to the Turkish defense chief on Tuesday.
"... There is economic security, there is cultural economy and there's cultural security," Defense Minister Hulusi Akar informed the 13th Ambassadors Conference in Ankara.
Giving an address to the Turkish representatives, Akar stated Türkiye wants to defend its frontiers from terrorist organizations through its cross-border operations, and "we have no interest in anyone's land."
Recalling Türkiye's contracts inked with Russia, in addition to the US on eliminating terrorists from northern Syria, Akar noted: "Although, we have undertaken and fulfilled all responsibilities on our part, our interlocutors have failed to fulfill the promises."
Remarking on the landmark grain export agreement brokered by Türkiye and the UN, Akar announced Ankara anticipates the contract carries on to be applied, without interruptions.
"The current deal is on exporting grain from Ukrainian ports, but talks are ongoing for Russian ports," he went on to say.
