I went to IGA and got a briefing about the new Istanbul Airport.
For example, there was a construction of 750 million square meters of land operation. They said it was as Suez Canal as the gap. We put this aside. Well, approximately 2 billion cubic meters of land movement is estimated in Kanal Istanbul. Where will we put this? What is being thought, for example, what does the public know about Kanal Istanbul? We will explain it all clearly. There's no turning around. Istanbul administration cannot turn its back. 16 million people chose me to take care of all these issues, to ask for an account if necessary, to get their rights. ”
