In the wake of last month’s local elections, the Turkish people should seek greater "unity and solidarity" and focus on the nation's pressing issues, said Turkey’s president on Friday, ONA reports.
"Leaving the election debates behind, we need to focus on our main agenda, particularly economy and security," Recep Tayyip Erdogan said in a Twitter message on Friday.
Erdogan urged "handshaking, embracing each other, and strengthening our unity and solidarity" while maintaining the balance of freedom and security.
Erdogan vowed to put into practice the structural reforms that Turkey needs while resolutely countering terrorism.
"We 82 million have to unite and act jointly as a Turkey alliance on the issues concerning the future of our country, putting aside all our political differences," he said, suggesting that election alliances give way to larger ones.
