‘Bridge between Europe and Turkic World’

Erdogan also congratulated Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orban for his country serving as a bridge between Europe and the Turkic world with their observer member status in the group, as well as for Budapest’s efforts for democracy in the EU.

The EU has stalled Türkiye’s membership process for over 50 years, and Ankara will give “the necessary response when needed,” Erdogan added.

The Supreme Order of the Turkic World honour places a “great responsibility on me,” Erdogan said, and continued: “I am determined to continue our efforts to strengthen the solidarity between our peoples, to improve relations between our states, and to further enhance the international reputation of our organisation.”
