ÜNAL also pointed out that Türkiye is a country of strategic importance due to its geographical location and concluded his words as follows:
“Homeland security starts from the borders, our country has strategic importance due to its location considering its land and sea borders. We see the importance of this with the events that occured on our borders every day. Geographically having long land and sea borders with its neighbours, Türkiye today interacts not only with the countries directly have borders with it but also with other countries with distant borders. We have to ensure the security of our borders at the highest level in order to prevent economic losses caused by illegal crossing and smuggling and to prevent socio-economic damages caused by irregular migrants. It should not be forgotten that deterrent and preventive security services are always more economical in the establishment of security.”
