Adnan Oktar: Turkey is the big brother and best friend of the region. They are our neighbours. We have lived together for hundreds of years. There is only an artificial separation. Border gates should be opened, visas should be removed and there should be strong commercial relations as well as an environment of joy, peace and abundance to involve everywhere. The whole world should also witness the ugliness of backstabbing, egoism and selfishness of this world, and yearn for us.

Adnan Oktar: There is only one solution to this. One solution both material and spiritual: Turkish Islamic Union. A large Islamic Union with the support of Turkish countries, in the leadership of Turkey. This would be the most honest, dignified and trustworthy structure in the whole world. I mean we are from the same descent, the same religion, the same race. I mean we have everything in common. There are many border gates, we should open those. Let’s open the border gates of Azerbaijan, Georgia, Iran, Iraq and Syria. Let’s go and trade freely, talk to one another and socialise. They are a part of us, our brothers and sisters. Why go there with a passport? We should pass the borders freely.
