"Increasing the deterrence of the Turkish Armed Forces constitutes a necessity for our country rather than a choice," Erdogan said on Wednesday, addressing a graduation ceremony at the Army War College in the capital Ankara. "We know very well from our bitter experiences that there cannot be a strong Türkiye without a strong army," Erdogan said.

"We have taken many historical steps that will strengthen our army. We literally wrote an epic in the field of defence industry," Erdogan said, adding that Türkiye has been elevated to the"top league" in terms of military capabilities.
