“If the global imperial structure continues to attack the great Turkish nation in every area in this way, the great Turkish nation will return to its National Oath,” journalist and adviser to President Tayyip Erdoğan, Yiğit Bulut, said provocatively on Twitter.
The “National Oath” or “National Treaty” (Misak-ı Millî) was adopted unanimously by the Turkish National Assembly on January 28, 1920 and was essentially the conditions they set in order to sign a Peace Treaty with the Entente forces – the winners of World War I.
According to the National Oath, which consisted of 6 articles, the borders of Turkey should be restored to the point that extended on October 17, 1918 during the signing of the Treaty of Mudros between the Ottoman Empire and the Entente.
The map of the “National Oath” included the islands of the northern Aegean and the Dodecanese, western Thrace and Macedonia up to Thessaloniki, Cyprus, Antioch, Aleppo, Jarablus, Der al-Zor, Mosul, Kirkuk and Sulaymaniyah.
Yiğit Bulut is one of the chief advisers of President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and a member of the Economic Policy Chairman.
The well-known exiled Turkey-born intellectual Mehmet Efe Çaman, who lives and works in Canada, commented harshly on Bulut’s sad statements.
According to Turkish Wikipedia, Yiğit Bulut is a financial analyst, columnist, presenter and presidential adviser.
Between 2009 and 2012, he worked as editor-in-chief at Habertürk TV.
Since 2014, he has been the Chief Financial Officer of the Turkish Presidency.
