All my trust in the politicians had been rubbed away.
Evren quotes
Turkey serves as an anchor of democracy, freedom, and stability in a region in turmoil. Your own Thomas Paine once wrote, 'Those who, expect to reap the blessings of freedom must . . . undergo the fatigue of supporting it.' Let me say that in Turkey, we do not feel fatigued by our support of the Western allies because we know that by supporting the allies, we may all continue to reap the blessings of freedom.
I sometimes feel jealous of countries like the U.S. and Great Britain that have two neighbors. ... When you have two neighbors, you have two problems. When you have eight neighbors, you have eight problems.

Evren Kenan quotes
