It contains the elements of hybrid wars and proxy wars. Countries that declared war no longer directly accumulate their armed forces in the target country and regions. They're going to get the people killed each other. These are Muslim peoples, we are quickly persuaded by this games as the Islamic world. Extraordinary periods also reveal extraordinary conditions and consequences. We have respected our responsibility to become a science academy in this period. We have always defended our domestic and national approach, which we have expressed before this extraordinary period. We regard loyalty to the unity of the Turkish state and nation, its integrity, independence and survival, since the beginning as the minimum of being domestic. There is no other measurement except this one. Our way will continue in this direction.”
