"Greece harasses our borders every day," said Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, who attended the inauguration ceremony of Marmaris Datça road, Milas drinking water treatment plant and Halicarnassus (Bodrum) State Hospital as well as other completed projects on Menteşe Avenue Atatürk.
Addressing Turkish citizens, Erdoğan initially said: "As long as Greece behaves well, we have no business, and it does not need to fear missiles." Insisting on fake Turkish news, he added: "Greece harasses our borders every day".

In particular, he said: "My brothers, can someone who shows off and disrespectfully insults the commanders of our army, who did not show or could not show a reaction, against Greece, which harasses our borders every day, supports the PKK, which has the blood of tens of thousands of innocents on its hands, supports FETÖ, the biggest dangerous gang our country has seen recently and in the countries that target our sovereignty?
"My brothers, according to our constitution, this brother of yours is the army's commander-in-chief. Our constitution says so, not me."
The Turkish president then said: “We can and will come suddenly one night", a statement first said before Turkey invaded Cyprus in 1974 and one repeated by the Erdoğan regime repeatedly in recent times,
"They cannot tolerate the fact that Turkey is able to design and produce its own products in every area of the defence industry, from land to air, from sea to cyberspace," he continued.
Erdoğan also proceeded to ask a series of questions to the attendees. "For 20 years, we hope to mobilise the vision of the 'Century of Turkey' in the same way that we have done with the projects that we have achieved.
"Are we ready to build the 'Century of Turkey' together? Are we ready to frustrate the ambitions of Turkey's external and internal enemies? Are we ready to welcome the new century of the Republic of Turkey in 2023 together, my brothers and sisters?"
