Adnan Oktar: Under the leadership of Turkey, with the help of the Turkish Union, that is a unification of Turkish governments, Turkish-Islamic Union will be established with the will of Allah. This will happen with the leadership of Turkey. We are already proceeding towards it, step by step. Already, what is most ideal is Turkey's leadership. As a state, each country will be separate however, insha’Allah it will be a spiritual unity, like the European Union. Passports and visas will be removed. The countries will be able to trade freely with each other, will be able to make business connections and be brothers. The first step will be taken with Azerbaijan in order to make the union come true. And Syria, an Islamic country. Azerbaijan is a country both Muslim and Turkish. Syria is our Muslim brother as well. Insha’Allah we will unite with Syria, too. These progresses will be the first steps. And these steps will follow one after another as a developing process. The establishment process of the Turkish-Islamic Union will successfully come to an end in ten to fifteen years insha’Allah.
