Erdogan's Opening Speech of Batıkent-Sincan Metro Line: Prime Minister Erdoğan addressed the citizens at the opening ceremony of the Batıkent-Sincan Metro.
Highlights from Erdogan's speech;
For Ankara, we live the historical day and the historical moment together. I would like to express my gratitude to the Prime Minister of Spain and his delegation who shared this moment with us and welcome to Xinjiang. Currently, around 135 countries and organizations from around the world support this project. It is very important in terms of showing that we are on the right track. The fact that this line was pulled forward 11 months is the result of a belief and effort. We have proved that you will be successful when you believe.
"WE ARE NOT LAF, WE PRODUCE EXECUTION"
Next month, we are taking the Kızılay-Çayyolu line back 10 months. There is the Keçiören Metro to Keçiören district. At the end of the year, we will start the test drives of Keçiören Metro. We will put it into service in 2015. New projects have started. We have a new metro line project from Kızılay to Esenboğa Airport. We do not produce words, we produce actions. We will have elevated Ankara to the position of the European capital in transportation, and made it an exemplary city in transportation.
"YOU CANNOT SLOW US"
We made Ankara a capital that can contribute to world peace. We elevated it to the position of capital of oppressed victims and poor. If we have kept away from unnecessary quarrels and tensions in 11 years and have produced services, we will fight for this today. I appeal to those who want to draw us into unnecessary discussions. Do not try in vain. You won't be able to slow us down. You will not be able to stop us from serving the nation. Whatever you do, we will continue to do our duty.
"ALL DOZERS IN THE SITE"
We took all kinds of steps, made foundations, and looked behind, a suspension of execution came about our city hospital in Etlik. It is not possible to understand. Unfortunately, we are prevented from dealing with them from continuing on our way. We will make a legal arrangement. To make this city hospital. One way or another, you will not be able to stop us from serving the nation. Whatever you do. Here is Etlik. All dozers and trucks are standing inside the construction site. It is a pity. An iota of love for this homeland gets bored in taking such steps. We have to think about it well.
