In his speech at the Service Exporters Meeting and 2018 HIB Award Ceremony held at the Istanbul Congress Center, President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said, “Just as there is Suez in the world and Gibraltar, we will also have Kanal Istanbul.” said.
President Erdogan, Turkey for years to distract those who suffered defeat, this time voicing their own internal strife, said:
“Even though they tried every way, they couldn't stop this happy walk, hopefully they will not. Inside, outside. Especially the person at the moment of the main opposition inside. We say 'Kanal İstanbul', and it turns out, 'You will not be able to do it.' Either we will. Whatever you do, we will do it. It also threatens contractors. 'Whatever contractor goes into this business, he knows he will not be able to get the money he gave - when we come, when we come.' says. Once a person who is unaware of what the state is. What do you mean? You will not be able to come, it's a different subject. Continuity is essential in the states, and a contractor got into this business, signed and contracted. I consider it a mistake to answer this and I want to remind all our contractors, our contractors with an international position, see what politician is there in this country. This is at the very beginning of the main opposition right now. I hope we are holding the tender in the coming weeks and we are starting to Kanal Istanbul. The work of this is not a 1 week, 1 month, 1 year, but a step towards the end of my mayor. We will realize this step. As there are Suez in the world, Gibraltar, we will have Channel Istanbul. ”
In addition to the environmentalist feature of Kanal Istanbul, kazanStating that he has rights to fight, Erdoğan said that the tanker burned in front of Selimiye for more than 7 months and nothing could be done.
Erdogan, many times the dry cargo ships in the Bosphorus, saying how many times tankers overlap the mansions, “At any moment this is a danger and a threat to the environment. With Kanal Istanbul, these threats will almost disappear and will have a serious return to our country. All of these studies have been done and the landing from the Black Sea to Marmara will be held here with a different feature and environmentalist understanding. said.
