08.02.2018 / Ankara

The Union of Chambers and Commodity Exchanges of Turkey (TOBB) and its 365 chambers and the commodity exchanges, made a joint statement in full support of Operation Olive Branch conducted by the Turkish Armed Forces.​

The declaration by the chambers and exchanges in regards to the operation hosted by TOBB President M. Rifat Hisarcıklıoğlu is as follows:

“As the Chambers and Commodity Exchanges representing the business community in Turkey, we are making a joint statement.

We believe and support that Operation Olive Branch initiated by our government is just and legitimate in order to protect our national security.

We appreciate that this operation is to ensure the border security of our country and to remove the terrorist corridor, which is a threat to both our country and the countries of the region.

None can expect us to remain silent in the face of terrorist groups killing innocents and posing a clear threat to the security of our country.

The region should be cleansed from terrorist organizations and the peace, security and peace environment should be restored.

With the ongoing series of operations which began with Euphrates Shield and continues with Olive Branch, Turkey is giving the most appropriate answer to terrorist organizations and their supporters.

We invite our overseas partners and all global business organizations to support our country, to clearly demonstrate their intention to show a united front against terrorism.

TOBB and 365 Chambers-Exchanges, we stand with our nation and our state.

We stand against those would disrupt the unity, integrity and peace of our country.

We will continue to work for our country and our nation with a greater determination to carry Turkey to its great goals.

We need but stand shoulder to shoulder without forgetting the importance of our unity and solidarity.

We need but keep each other, believe each other and trust each other.

As the business community of Turkey, with our prayers and all of our hearts, we stand by our state and heroic soldiers.

May the grace of Allah be upon all our martyrs who gave their lives; we pray for rapid recovery for the wounded. May Allah guard Mehmetçik and grant our armed forces victory. May Allah grant us aid in this endeavor.”
