Turkey continues to be hope for all mankind with its democracy and economy despite terror attacks and traps, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Monday.

“Turkey continues to be hope for all its friends and mankind although it is exposed to terror attacks, blockades and traps while standing tall with its democracy and economy," Erdogan issued a message on the Eid al-Fitr.

Erdogan said he was saddened for the people who suffered from oppression and poverty during sacred Eid al-Fitr across the world.

Referring that the world went through a substantial change, he said Turkey is ready to resist this critical period with all of its strength.

He added that Turkey stands in an advantageous position with its investments, projects and public services which have been implemented in the last 17 years.
