In particular, the Turkish President announced that he was going to build a large military headquarters, which will house the Ministry of Defense, the General Staff, and the individual staff of the Turkish Armed Forces under the same roof.
“In the face of changing and evolving defense needs, we have an obligation to bring all defense institutions together under one roof and to work together in coordination,” Erdogan said.
He also said that the new combined defense center would cause “fear in the enemies and confidence in the allies”.
According to Turkish sources, the building will have the shape of a crescent with the star depicted on the Turkish flag, will be built in huge dimensions, employing about 15,000 employees, and is planned to be inaugurated in 2023 on the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Turkish state.
