            Sinai Settlement Plan Unveiled

    Jerusalem- Prime Minister Netanyahu and Vice Prime Minister Miri Regev greeted the press from the steps of the Knesset at 2:00 PM IDT, to announce their governments plan to further increase the development and settlement of the Israeli Sinai Region. The Plan, unveiled by the two Likud Leaders, is a detailed Afforestation and Deseret Reclamation project that is expected to cost approximately $2 Billion USD ( ₪6.8 Billion Israeli New Shekels). The project, according to Prime Minister Netanyahu will be half funded by Foreign and Israeli private investment, while the other half will be funded by Jerusalem.

    The aim of the project of will be to plant 1 Million Acres of trees along the Northern Israeli Sinai Mediterranean coast over the course of the next few years, as well as working with the Ministry of Immigration and Diaspora Affairs to encourage the Settlement of thousands of new Israelis in the new Sinai Agricultural Regions.

    The Ministries of Agriculture and Immigration, according to Netanyahu, already have plans in the works to begin settling nearly 10,000 American Jewish Immigrants in the Sinai, with the goal of providing them new farmland and greenhouses to begin the process of establishing the new Sinai Agricultural economy.

    Vice Prime Minister Regev has also stated a new underground water reservoir in the Western Sinai has been discovered that will provide 84.5 billion gallons towards the initial phases of the project.

    The Plan also includes allotting sparsely populated lands in the Central Sinai Region to the Bedouin People of Southern Israel. The Bedouin Arabs make up a population of approximately 250,000 people, and are one of the fastest growing demographic groups in Israel. The lands allotted to them would be outfitted with basic infrastructure, that will be maintained by the Israeli Department of Infrastructure, Water, and Energy. And will provide the Growing Bedouin Population with room to expand and grow, while also maintaining their culture and traditions.

    According the Prime Minister Netanyahu, Vice Prime Minister Miri Regev will be taking up the newly created role of Sinai Development and Affairs and will be responsible for the implementation of the plans moving forward.

            Statue of Netanyahu Unveiled

    Amit- Early this Afternoon, in little known boarder town of Amit (Formerly El Qantara) a peculiar site was unveiled. Amit Mayor Irina Zeev and the local town council unveiled a gold colored Statue of sitting Prime Minister Benjamin Netanayhu.

    Mayor Zeev stated the statue was commissioned by the town government roughly one year ago, and was designed by two local artists.
    Joshua Gold (Jewish Israeli) and Haneen al-Saah (Egyptian Israeli). According the Mayor and Councilors the statue was commissioned to commemorate Prime Minister Netanayhu and the role he played in annexing the Sinai Peninsula.

    The Statue is located in the town centre, outside of Town Hall. It faces West looking towards the Israeli Suez and across the Egyptian-Israeli Boarder.

    While the statue has been met with positive reception by the Israeli population of the town, those few Egyptian Arabs that remain in the area have been vocally against the idea since the town council approved the statue late last year.

      Turmoil in Parliament

PARIS -- The recent announcement made by President Nicolas Sarkozy to withdraw all French personnel from the NATO Military Command sparked controversy amongst lawmakers shortly after the announcement. The Socialist Group President Valérie Rabault called the move “Dangerous for the national security of France” while the Republicans, who hold a majority in the National Assembly and Senate, called the move “Decisive and necessary”. NATO Allied Command Transformation Commander André Lanata stepped down from his position just 30 minutes after the decree was made by the President. The Allied Command Transformation headquartered in Norfolk, Virginia is intended to lead military transformation of alliance forces and capabilities, using new concepts such as the NATO Response Force and new doctrines in order to improve the alliance's military effectiveness. Since France rejoined the NATO Military Command Structure in mid-2009, a significant change took place where the Supreme Allied Commander Transformation (SACT) became a French officer. The first French officer to serve as SACT was French Air Force General, Stephane Abrial.

Right wing conservative and presidential candidate Marine Le Pen praised the move, saying that it’s time to remove France from globalist idealism that will only hurt the integrity of France on a global scale. While again people with a more leftist political viewpoint such as the President of the Socialist Party Oliveir Faure calls it “A step backwards for France and Europe.”

      Sarkozy Departs to Cairo, Again

The President has left Paris for Cairo for the second time in under two months. This time the President is determined to secure a deal with the Egyptian government in relation to the situation in Bosnia. Egyptian presence in the country has sparked major controversy amongst EU states. The President has called the NATO response to the situation an embarrassment. The Germans, Italians, and the French have all come to a consensus that they are willing to use the EU to impose harsh economic sanctions on the country of Egypt due to this, and to also maneuver financial penalties on Egyptian assets. It is expected during this meeting some sort of deal can be made, to bring back to Europe in order things to move forward in this situation just ahead of the EU Summit which is scheduled for later on this month.

            Cleaning India

            One man's waste is another man's treasure
            July 5th

with the likes of 1 500 000 metric tons of waste building up in India every day, President Kunnathuparambil has launched a gigantic and fantastical plan to cut India's waste by half. The Clean India Initiative seeks to cut India's waste and pollution by 40% by 2035.

Kunnathuparambil's plan involves almost tripling the current recycling workforce to 220 000 000 in 15 years. More recycling plants and greater waste collection methods aim to keep streets and rivers clean of any visible rubbish. Kunnathuparambil also aims to increase waste management and recycling education, making it a mandatory part of education.

Plastics will be collected and sorted in 32 new recycling processing plants. The recycled plastics will be used to pave roads, build benches, bins, pipes, and the like. As part of CUII, Kunnathuparambil stated that she wants 'a flushing toilet in every home' and 'many more decent paved roads' by 2035. When critiques called her out for being 'quixotic,' she responded with the lyrics from Imagine; "They may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one."

Consolidated Infantry Weapon Program
The Army Ordnance Division has concluded testing on rifle and handgun candidates as part of its Consolidated Infantry Weapons Program.

  • Rifle testing: The FN F2000 was found to perform highly in all of the desired categories, particularly in its reliability in sandy environments. Rifles were capable of 2 MOA average group accuracy on semiautomatic. All 10 rifles survived the required durability testing, suffering few stoppages. The Trucial Land Army has ordered 100,000 F2000 rifles in the Tactical variant from FN Herstal in Revereia for a contract price of $90 million USD. Rifles will be equipped with the Steiner P4Xi 1-4x LPVO optical sight from Wulworth. FN's GL1 40mm grenade launchers have also been ordered for some rifles.

  • Handgun testing: The H&K USP performed exceptionally in the categories of reliability, accuracy, and handling. Due to these factors, in addition to the wide range of support for the platform, it has been selected as the winner of pistol trials. Subsequently the Trucial Land Army has ordered 70,000 USP pistols from Heckler & Koch in Wulworth, caliber 9x19mm Parabellum, for a contract price of $49 million USD.

Board of Revenues

The Board of Revenues has announced that it would authorize the sale of 5G equipment to the Mongolia Telecom Company, as the country starts to assist its northern neighbour in modernising its telecommunications networks.

Currently, telecommunications systems in Mongolia face unique challenges, as the significant portion of the population living a nomadic lifestyle has rendered it difficult for ICT companies to make headway into Mongolian society. With almost half the population clustered in the capital of Ulaanbaatar, most landline technologies are deployed there. Wireless technologies have had greater success in rural areas.

Under this new arrangement, telecoms equipment provider Huawei will begin 5G trials in Ulaanbaatar for 5 months, followed by more trials in Choibalsan and Erdenet. 1,300 base stations will be installed in the three testing sites - if everything proves to be successful, the company will make plans to sell up to 50,000 5G base stations to the Mongolia Telecom Company, allowing the country access to 5G telecommunications.

--------------

In other news, the Board of Revenues has also expressed interest in capitalising on Nepal's bustling startup scene, as part of a greater Zhen-Nepalese friendship initiative.

Since 2015, hundreds start-ups have sprung up in Nepal, which was also after the year where a deadly earthquake killed nearly 9,000 people. Several months after that, India imposed an unofficial trade and humanitarian blockade the country, causing the economy to spiral further downward. The country's massive reliance on foreign imports, aid, and tourism had rendered its economy unsustainable, so locals had started to explore domestic alternatives.

The start-ups offer goods and services ranging from apparel to tech products, and operate in sectors as varied as horticulture, organic food chains, disaster recovery and the vehicle industry. The entrepreneurs are usually people between the ages of 22 and 35 who have been educated in universities overseas.

The Board of Revenues has drawn plans to grant 400 small start-ups in the country $500,000 USD investments, which is expected to increase their starting capital and business performance. Some of the start-ups which will be granted participation in this new investment scheme include coffee chain Red Mud Coffee, e-commerce platform Foodmandu and ride-sharing app Tootle. Altogether, around $200 million USD will be dedicated to this scheme.

In addition, the Zhen Board of Works has also offered to cooperate with this scheme by providing small annual payments of up to $11,000 USD. This is offered to Nepalese alumni students who had studied in the Zhen and subsequently returned home to engage in entrepreneurship.

MINISTRY OF INTERNAL AFFAIRS PULLING THE ROPE WITH BELGRADE CITY AUTHORITIES ON THE NUMBER OF NEW POLICE OFFICERS

Just after he was sworn as a new mayor of Belgrade, Ivica Dačić (DS) has promised putting 8.000 more police officers on the streets of Belgrade up to the end of the year, in order to, as he has described it, "lower the crime rates and boost the employment rates". However, although it is up to Belgrade city authorities to open the contest for employing new police officers in the capital of Serbia, it is Ministry of Internal Affairs that decides of the number of police officers who are going to be employed at the end.

Yesterday, documents were leaked from the Interior Ministry, showing Interior Minister Vladimir Popović's intention to employ only 3,500 new police officers of total 8,000 requested by Belgrade mayor Ivica Dačić, describing his request as "unrealistic for our current financial situation" and "cheap attempt of mayor's self-promotion". In the meantime, Ministry has confirmed that leaked documents from the closed meeting between the Interior Minister Popović (DS) and his team are authentic, meaning that these comments has really been delivered on that meeting. Majority of analysts even agree that documents were leaked purposely, so that Minister Popović, regarded as one of the most powerful men in the Cabinet, send public message to mayor Dačić about his early ambitious behavior.

In his reaction on what has been leaked, mayor Dačić said:

"I am sad if that is the official position of Ministry. Everyone understands that leaks happened purposely, and I would appreciate if the Minister chose to invite me on talks and settle the matter that way rather than making this issue bigger than it is. However, due to nature of the situation, I will not give up on my request of 8,000 new police officers on the streets of Belgrade, because it is not about my self-promotion, as you all know I have nothing personally from that except if Minister is for example implying that I am in the conflict of interests regarding the job contest which is completely false, but it is about making our capital city more safe for all our citizens. If this situation continues like this, I am going to ask the Prime Minister on next Cabinet meeting to be involved in settling the matter and deciding how many new police officers will Belgrade citizens be able to see up to the end of this year."

Up to this moment, Prime Minister Balša Božović (DS), who's also the party leader of Democratic Party whose members are both Minister Popović and mayor Dačić, has not yet publicly stated anything in regards to this specific issue. But if Ministry of Internal Affairs once again reject Dačić's proposal of additional 8,000 police officers, there's no doubt that the Prime Minister will have to choose between the two or try to reach the compromise among them.

On the other hand, Leader of the Opposition Saša Janković (SDP) has called all this "an internal fight among DS factions where no one actually cares of people", implying what large public has recognized as two factions fighting for power within DS - on one side Foreign Minister Hana Adrović, Belgrade mayor Ivica Dačić and their followers, and on the other Interior Minister Vladimir 'Beba' Popović, Prime Minister's Chief of Staff Ivan Mrkić and their followers. Although this comment has passed well among the opposition voters, it has been criticized as ignorant, since both mayor Dačić and Minister Popović have stated their reasons which are pretty much concerning the care for people - first has described his intentions as attempts to boost safety and employment, and second has described his concerns as of economic nature and need to be fiscally rational.

HEALTH MINISTER TO LAUNCH TWO IMPORTANT PROJECTS

This morning on the press conference in his Ministry, Health Minister Miodrag Stojković told the press that Health Ministry will launch two major projects in the upcoming period. Here's what he said:

"In last three months, we have mostly focused on fighting the covid-19 directly and honestly speaking some other important areas have been left with less cover and attention. Now that pandemic is mostly behind us, although certain number of cases remains, we must focus back on our other priorities and try to give our best to offer each patient our full attention. Two areas are of great significance, and both are partly related to the post-covid health situation. First project we're going to launch is concerning the further development of artificial insemination programs for our citizens, and the other one is concerning the further development of care for the situation in area of psychical health. Allow me to briefly speak of both.

First, regarding the artificial insemination, you all probably already know how many couples we have each year with requests to enter the programs. It is the sad truth that each year less and less couples decide to try to get a child in natural way, mostly due to sexual health issues possibly related with uranium bombing we faced back in 1999 and everyday consuming of genetically modified food, but it is still amazing that there's an alternative to natural procedure and that is artificial insemination. If we want to preserve ourselves as a nation and invest into our future, we must care of the birth rates. Therefore, Health Ministry has decided to launch programs of further increasing of our capacities so that couples don't need to wait for months before they can enter the standard procedure.

Second program is more concerned with the pandemic, but let us first not forget in regards to previously described program that it is also related to pandemic in a positive way because while people were locked home we faced significant boost of the birth rate. Now, passing to the second program, and that is related to the psychical health of our citizens. It is also deeply related to the pandemic situation that we had, mostly because numerous people were left in homes during the curfew hours that we've had and not everyone accepted that well in terms of psychic response to events. So, in the upcoming period we must focus on lowering the stigmatic treatment that psychological health issues have had for a long time in our past, we must give our best to accept that as normal and ordinary set of health problems, and we must put more efforts into healing them. I know it is not easy, but we must try because if we give up on a significant number of our citizens, then we're not worth to be governing this country and this Ministry. Therefore, we are going to organize more free medical appointments for patients, more education seminars and better psychical health coverage for patients in villages.

I suppose you're curious on how are we going to finance all that, and I can assure you that Ministry has money to launch them, but we are also going to rely on citizens donations and I want to use this chance to urge our citizens to donate into the public health citizens because that is direct investment in the future and healthy life of all our compatriots."

The Following has been Published by an Independent Media Outlet

President, General Yaqoub Ali Khan had earlier ordered and Emergency Meeting in the Wake of the Afghan Crisis, since then the Government has come under increasing Pressure from its Immediate Neighbour, India to Relinquish its Claim over the Kashmir Territory, Yaqoub's Government has not yet taken a sigh of Relief as the Nation tries to hurdle over its Many Crisis but at the same time strides to achieve Progress.

More Recently, the Government has approved a Project which aims to Divert Rivers which flow in between the Mountains that Border the Pak-Afghan Border in to Pakistani Territory so that the Water can be used for the Purpose of Drinking, the Contract has been awarded to a Private Egyptian Enterprise only Days afetr both Governments Pledged to strengthen Ties. It Must be kept in mind that this is a Private adventure, the enterprise does not represent the Egyptian Government itself.

Chairman of the Water and Power Development Authority (WAPDA) Naseer Shamsi celebrated the project as a major achievement which would "Allow for a Greater Number of people to be able to access clean Drinking Water". The Project could benefit Millions although there remains concern that instead of the water being utilized for the purpose of Domestic Use, it may instead be used by the Government to Foster Greater Irrigation furthermore the affect of this Project on Neighbouring Afghanistan's Water supply also remains a matter of Great Concern, the two have recently been embrolled in a Cold Dispute over the Matter of Terrorrism, tensions hit a new high when the Afghan Government suddenly sealed their Border, arrested a number of Pakistani nationals on the charges of Terrorism and executed 14 among them. However the Pakistani Government has reiterated that the Project has no Political Agenda and is only based upon the government's efforts to ease the Water crisis which affects many parts of the country. A government spokesperson stated to Media Personnel that "We hold no Political Agenda behind this Project, it is a matter of our internal Affairs which we have the freedom to operate"

Hence it has become quite evident that the Government is in no Mood to bear claims that there lyes any "Sinister" Cause.

President Yaqoub Ali has taken the decision to Face the Nation in the Wake of the "Disgusting" behaviour of the State of Afghanistan which in accordance to his statements is a "Gross abuse of Human Rights towards which the World has turned a Blind Eye". His Live Telecasted Nation-Wide Address displays his Response.

"Assalamoalaikum, people today i come forth, representing You to the International Community, excercising my right to Protest against the brutalities of the Afghan Government. 14 of Our innocent Men who had been arrested on charges of Terrorism have been Martyred and Yes Martyred, why do i say that? Because i have no doubt that these men were Innocent, they had been taken in custody by Wrongful Force and Provided no Justice. I have a credible reasoning to support this suggestion of mine, these arrests came not long after the sudden border closure initiated by the ASF and even when they were arrested, the handling of their cases seems quite questionable and corrupt when considering that the court Proceedings of all of these men were completed within Mere Days, which raises alarm surrounding the transparency of these sessions. The Government of Pakistan was not even served its basic right to be made aware of the identities of these individuals nor the supposed evidence which proved their guilt, in consideration of this, it can only be understood that the Nature of these proceedings is nonetheless questionable and concerning Leaving us to conclude that Pakistanis in Afghanistana are being continously maligned and Attacked due to their Nationality, although we had raised concern regarding the dissappearence of a Pakistani in Afghanistan, Young Ismail Khan, we have still not received any word on him. Where is the basic human rights which many world Governments hope to display? The Afghan government has not only chosen to completely bombard us for their failures but also to tarnish the Brotherly relations in between Afghans and Pakistanis. Considering these actions as Gross and intolerable, i have issued a number of Decrees with immediate Affect,
1) The Pakistani Government with immediate effect, severes all Diplomatic and Trade Relations with Afghanistan.
2) The Afghan ambassodar in Pakistan is expelled with immediate effect while the Pakistani Ambassodar is being recalled.
3) The Afghan-Pakistan Transit Trade Agreement (APTTA) is terminated with immediate effect.
4) The Pakistani Government with immediate effect Terminates the permission given to the Afghan Government to conduct Transit Trade From the Port of Gwadar.
5) Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) has been commissioned to arrange the repatriation of all Pakistani Nationals in Afghanistan.
6) Pakistan has closed its Airspace and Territorial Waters to Afghanistan."


1) The Afghan government loses the ability to co-operate with the Pakistani Government, Afghanistan's exports will be reduced.
2) The Afghan government loses the ability to co-operate with the Pakistani Government.
3) Afghanistan will lose the opportunity to strengthen bilateral Trade Relations with Pakistan.
4) Afghanistan will lose the ability to Import Goods from the Port of Gwadar, which would force its Government to resort to taking the Much Longer and Risky Route that Runs through War-Torn Nations.
5) Pakistani Migrant Labor reduced, local businesses may be affected.
6) Afghanistan will not be able to access Pakistani Airspace or Waters.

"i believe that we bare the right to undertake such painful Measures in light of the much more daunting steps taken by the Afghan Government. On the Matter of Persian Involvement, it is only best if their offer would come in the case where they were nuetral, whereas they are not, it is my appeal to them that they study their actions, review their status" - A portion of the Speech

Mehmetçik in Korea after 67 years!

EAST ASIA– Thousands gathered in Busan to green the Turkish Armed Forces, including members of the Korean Government, and the Turkish Diplomatic Mission to Korea. The troops landed in Busan on the 67th anniversary of the final Turkish divisions arrival to Busan during the Korean War. Turkish and Korean forces are also set to take part in a joint military parade on the 25th of July, marking the 70th year anniversary when Turkey became the first nation to answer the UN's call to send troops to Korea. The periods President, Nihal Atsız, on the day Turkey answered the call to war addressed the nation via radio in which he said

'Yesterday, it was us who needed our Mehmetçiks survival, but today it is our brothers who need our Mehmetçiks for their survival. The call made thousands of years ago by Korea to the Göktürks for an alliance will be honored today, tomorrow, and until the end of time.'

Throughout the duration of the Korean War, President Nihal Atsız had deployed a total of 49,239 military personal to Korea. Even helping in establishing the Korean education system through the 'Ankara Schools'. However when the post World War economy began to cool down in the late 50s, Turkey once again had entered an era of neutrality. With the last Turkish troops leaving Korea in 1962. Since then around 60,000 Turks and Koreans have resettled in each others countries. This brotherhood between the Turkish and Korean people was best highlighted during the 99 Marmara Earthquake when Korea became the biggest donor of aid and personal to Turkey in a time of crisis. And later in the 2002 World Cup when Turkey played with the home field advantage due to the support of Korean fans for the Turkish Nationals. When the two nations faced off in the Third Place match for the 2002 World Cup the headline in both country read 'brotherhood'. The bond has continued into the new generation as well between the two people, with polls as recent as 2018 suggesting that Turks view Korea as Turkey's closest ally. Only second to Azerbaijan.

Over the last 30 years the two nations have continued to expand cooperation across all sectors, especially in joint Turkish-Korean businesses. Today Korea is the only the only non-Turkic Council member state whose citizens may apply for 'Blue Cards' also known as Citizenship Lite, which gives those who are granted Blue Cards all the benefits of citizenship with the exception of voting. Meanwhile Seoul has implemented a similar policy for Turkish citizens. President Meral Akşener and Empress Geunhye most recently expanded Turkey and Korea's military partnership to include 25,000 Turkish Military Personal being stationed in Korea, mostly made up of conscripts. The hope of both nations is to raise a new generation of soldiers trained with the best of the Turkish and Korean Armed Forces.

TURKEY – Since the 1993 elections Turkey has held a strict policy of neutrality toward its neighbors, and the world around it as the 2023 Project began to pick up steam. The joint effort by the state and populace to create a Turkish revival had finally been realized, just as Turkey's liberalization had began to see its benefits just 20 years after implantation. It was only in the late 2000s that Turkey began to move away from neutrality, this was due to the MHPs rise to prominence in the mid 2000s. With the MHP claiming victory in 2011, Akşener at the time would become the second female Prime Minister of Turkey, having previously held the post as Speaker from 1999-2010. Bahçeli though would become President, someone who saw neutrality as Turkey's key to success, while Akşener would push for increased Turkish involvement across the world. Along with infighting in the MHP between different factions, this division would lead to the eventual split of the MHP into the ÖC (Ötüken Front) and the İYİ Parti (Good Party). Though the sudden split of the MHP would lead to snap elections, the İYİ Parti would claim victory, with the ÖC falling below the 15% threshold required to enter the Assembly. Bahçeli would retire from politics a day after the election, and has yet to appear in the public eye.

Meral Akşener's election as President in 2017 made her first female President in the Republic's history, and since then Turkey's neutrality has slowly eroded. The deployment of Turkish troops to Korea has been described by many as the official end of Turkish neutrality, and the beginning of a new era in the Republic's history. This was highlighted on her May 19th Speech when President Akşener reassured the nation at the face of the Covid-19 Crisis, just a month before the vaccine would be available. Delivering a version of the Eternal Presidents 1933 address to the nation that reassured the nation on the 10th anniversary of the Republic that our future was brighter than ever.

    "The Turkish Nation! My citizens,

    97 years ago our fight for freedom and Independence began an undying fire of the Turkish people, through all hardships we triumphed. This
    is the greatest achievement the Republic. May it be celebrated for each of us. This is our moment, as a member of the great Turkish nation, I feel the deepest joy and excitement for what we have done up to this day. We have accomplished many and great tasks in a short time. The greatest of these is the Turkish Republic, the basis of which is the Turkish vallancy and the great Turkish culture. The undying spirit of our people against all evil. We owe this achievement to the cooperative progress of the Turkish nation and
    its valuable army. However, we can never consider what we have achieved to be sufficient, because we must, and are determined to, accomplish even more and greater tasks. We have raised our country to the level of the most prosperous and civilized nations of the world. We have endow our nation with the broadest means and sources of welfare. We have risen our national culture above the contemporary level of civilization. Thus, we should judge the measure of time not according to the lax mentality of past centuries, but in terms of the concepts of speed and movement of our century. Compared to the past, we will always work harder. We shall perform greater tasks in a shorter time. I have no doubt that we shall succeed in this, because the Turkish nation is of excellent character. The Turkish nation is intelligent, because the Turkish nation is capable of overcoming difficulties of national unity, and because it holds the torch of positive sciences. These are the very truths that led us to the where we are today. I must make it clear with due emphasis, that a historical quality of the Turkish nation, which is an exalted human community, is its love for fine arts and progress in them. This is why our national ideal is to constantly foster and promote, with all means and measures, our nation's excellent character, its tireless industriousness, intelligence, devotion to science, love for fine arts and sense of national unity. This ideal, which very well suits the Turkish nation, will enable it to succeed in performing the civilized task falling on it in securing true peace for all mankind. The Great Turkish Nation, we have followed in the footsteps of our Eternal President for
    the last 82 years. As he once said himself, there are two Mustafa Kemal Atatürks,
    one the flesh and blood that stood before us. The other, one that has lasted beyond his lifetime.
    The cornerstone of our civilization. The teacher of the very ideals and principles that we dream to live up to.

    O great Atatürk,

    I express my heartfelt wish that you will celebrate, after each decade
    elapsing into eternity, this great national day, in greater honor,
    happiness, peace and prosperity.

    How happy is the one who says "I am a Turk.""

        FOREIGN MINISTER KHALED KHAYREDDINE : 'WE WILL WITHDRAW FROM BOSNIA, BUT WE WILL NOT ABANDON THE BOSNIANS'.

      بِسْمِ ٱللّٰهِ ٱلرَّحْمَٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيم

      | SARAJEVO — President Sarkozy travelled to Cairo on the 4th of July 2020 with the purpose of mediating Egyptian and European interests with respect to Bosnia. The Islamic Revolutionary Guards had previously established a presence in Bosnia with the purpose of securing Bosnia's legitimate security concerns, to keep such concerns valid, the new Egyptian and EU agreement will include an understanding that the European Union cannot interfere in Bosnian affairs for a period of 5 years, in exchange for the transfer of Al-Fatah Base and Imam Abbas Base to the regular Bosnian Military, and the withdrawal of Egyptian personnel from the country. |

      | The news of the withdrawal of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards was met with mixed reactions from Egypt's political spectrum. Numerous members of the National Assembly who belong to the Islamic Front, critiqued the Al-Faryadani administration for 'being too weak and submissive to Imperialist economic warfare' an echo that was heard amongst numerous figures of the Fundamentalist political faction. On the other hand, Reformists have praised the Government for its initiative to uphold the stability of Bosnia and the success in securing a 5-year EU commitment to to not interfere in any Bosnian affairs which includes a non aggression pact between the Bosnian and EU parties, respectively, a clause which Egypt pushed four as a layer of additional protection for Bosnia in the absence of a public Egyptian presence. |

      | The Foreign Minister however, indicated that despite an Egyptian agreement to withdraw, the Egyptian-Bosnian working partnership would not end and that the two states will continue the working partnership that has already been established primarily in socioeconomic fields. |
