The Turkish government will continue providing opportunities to young people as the country "grows, strengthens and advances on the path of regional and global leadership," its president said on Tuesday, APA reports citing Anadolu Agency.

"In our fight against imperialist and colonialist occupying forces, our nation rushed forward to rise once more in solidarity and unity with an unshakable determination," President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said in a message celebrating the May 19 Commemoration of Ataturk, Youth and Sports Day.

Erdogan underlined that young people are the hope of the country with their heroic deeds and efforts they have shown in every period since the country's War of Independence, according to a statement by the Communications Directorate.

May 19 is a milestone in Turkish history, the day when Mustafa Kemal Ataturk arrived in the Black Sea city of Samsun from Istanbul in 1919 to launch the war that transformed the nation into modern Turkey four years later.

President Erdogan also asserted that Turkish young people would carry the country forward and continue representing the country with their achievements in the national and international arena.

"We expect them to make the most of the opportunities that we provide them in all fields, from education to employment, from art to sports," he said.
