Clichés may sometimes seem too “cliché” and not saying anything, but in fact they come from long times ago, often through challenging experiences.
We are in a period when we really “need unity and solidarity” the most, we have to act together, and as I have previously stated in other occasions, we need to trust our country the most.
For a country like Turkey that has both a deep-rooted history and a great potential, there is no way other than democracy. This is the reason why we should all the way protect the basic democratic values and rights. Our country has survived tough times before and will continue to remain a member of the modern world, taking firm steps towards development. I have no doubt about it.
Keeping our hopes and spirits high is our duty not only to ourselves and to our country, but also to our children who are our future. Whatever we are in charge of, each one of us must continue to do it in the best possible way. How you survive the toughest times is the best indicator of your strength.
There is not a slightest change in our trust in Turkey as we know that it has successfully managed to overcome many serious crises and similar situations before. We have expressed this after other recent sad events as well. (“We believe in Turkey, we are with you”). As Siemens, the reason for being able to celebrate our 160 years in Turkey is the fact that our trust has never lapsed.
I want to emphasize once again that in order to head straight together towards a brighter future in a democratic country, whatever we are in charge of, we must continue to do it in the best wy possible.
With my best wishes for our country and all of us.
