He stated that the ancestors of this nation ruled over three continents and seven seas for more than 600 years, within the framework of the 'Keep people alive so that the state can live' principle.
Stating that they now talk about computer literacy instead of reading or writing, Binali Yıldırım said that they are experiencing a new process together towards the use of informatics, technology, digitalization and artificial intelligence.

"We invite the UN to stop this brutality and barbarism"
Drawing attention to the heart-breaking, disproportionate war that started in Palestine, Binali Yıldırım emphasized that terrorism is the scourge of humanity. Underlining that Türkiye knows well the cost of terrorism, Binali Yıldırım added that the fight against terrorism has been continuing for forty years. Noting that the civilian massacre in Gaza under the pretext of terrorism is unacceptable, Binali Yıldırım said that they invited all international organizations and the UN to stop this brutality and barbarism. Stating that he does not believe that the UN can stop this brutality, Binali Yıldırım said that there will be no peace since one of the permanent members of the UN has clearly taken his place in this brutality by being a side of Israel. Reiterating President Erdoğan's emphasis that 'The world is bigger than 5', Yıldırım underlined that Israel should take into consideration the calls of Türkiye and the President Erdoğan and stop the massacre as soon as possible.
