“We are trade unions and professional organizations representing Turkey's workers, farmers, employers, civil servants, tradesmen, merchants, industrialists and producers.

Forest fires have occurred in different parts of our country throughout last week. Although many wildfires have been contained, fires are still ongoing in different places.

We pray for the grace of Allah upon our citizens who lost their lives in the fires. We would like to express our gratitude to all the teams and citizens who fought hard day and night to put out the fires.

As always, our country has the strength, capabilities and opportunities to overcome this difficulty together. We believe that our country will succeed in ending this fire disaster as soon as possible, put forward a rapid restoration process and heal all wounds with state-nation solidarity.

In these difficult times, we are experiencing days in which to promote unity, solidarity and fraternity, which increases the fighting power while avoiding actions which would overshadow the fight by our state.

We stand with our state and our nation in this struggle to the extent that we are able.
