The future must be planned on the basis of a profound analysis of history, Turkey will built itself a bigger country with the help of Allah, stated Turkish President Recep Erdogan to the participants in the conference on a new concept of security, reported BGNES.

Erdogan emphasised the Lausanne Treaty under which 3 million sq km of Ottoman lands were reduced to 780,000 sq km.

“And this happened in Lausanne, under our very noses. They took so much land away from us and, yet, some people found a reason to be proud of this. What were we, what have we become, what will we be? This is a very important question for us,” pointed out Erdogan.

“The Lausanne Treaty is not an indisputable text, it is not holy. Of course we will discuss it; we will attempt to find a better solution. They should not find a fault with us for we have given our word to the nation. We will dispute all stipulations (of the treaty),” added Erdogan.
