We came here to sign a memorandum of close cooperation with the Ministry of National Defence, so that we can have full coordination between the actions and views of these two Ministries. In line with the broader doctrine of our country, a member state of the European Union that wants to always be at the core of Europe, but also a country that wants to have excellent relations with all of its neighbours and to be a factor for stability and security in the region.

But we mustn’t forget that our country, which traditionally extends an olive branch, is a country that also has a sword. So today we are here where the sword is kept to honour this Ministry and to take a further step in our close cooperation.
