The roads were old, we dropped the speed to 100 and then we didn't renew the roads, we said that trains should go with 80, 60 would go away quickly N Remember, while the train was on the way to the train, the taxi would have sounded in the tukada, the taxi would have no chance of sleeping. In the past there was a sleeper on the trains, but you could not sleep. Now what we do is: up to the Doğukapı, the highest point of our country, until Akyaka, we renewed the way to the border with Armenia, renewed the tracks, renewed our trains, and so our people made a comfortable journey. Okay, the trip takes 24 hours, but our people see it as a pleasure, not grieving.

We made places where people would stay around Çıldır Lake, we took ships last year, we did scaffolding. Not only for Çıldır Lake but also for many places to stay in Sarıkamış. There are now comfortable places where people will stay. Those who had already come to Kars could not find a hotel with an 5 star.
