Erdogan wishes peace, stability across globe in 2019

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Monday wished "peace and tranquility" for all humanity across the world in 2019.

In his message for New Year, Erdogan said: "We side with stability, justice, tolerance and peace across the world, together with our region."

“Through this understanding, we defend the rights of Jerusalem, Damascus, Baghdad, Cairo, Tripoli, Sarajevo, and Crimea.

Turkey is “not responsible for the incidents in our region and will not be a victim of them,” Erdogan said.

“Developments in Syria are the result of these efforts,” he added.

Turkey has conducted two successful cross-border operations into Syria since 2016 -- Euphrates Shield and Olive Branch operations -- both meant to eradicate the presence of PYD/PKK and Daesh terrorists near Turkey’s borders.

In his message, Erdogan stressed that Turkey does not have designs on any country’s soil, sovereignty and their rights.

“Our sole goal is to ensure the safety, tranquility and a guaranteed future for our own people and brothers living in our region,” he said.

The Turkish leader had signaled that a cross-border operation against the terrorist PYD/YPG in Syria would happen soon.

Erdogan also said Turkey has been continuing to contribute to the stability of Iraq.

“We’ve been showing our determination in preserving our rights in Cyprus, Eastern Mediterranean, and the Aegean, both in political area and on the ground.”

He reiterated Turkey’s resolute stance in counter-terrorism.

“We’ve left behind a year, in which we won the biggest success of our history in fight against terrorism.”

“Our security forces have been destroying terrorists by entering all the caves of terror organizations, whether on mountains, in cities or abroad,” he added.
