“We are waging another war similar to the War of Independence, which we started a century ago and climaxed with the establishment of our republic,” Erdogan said in a video message to the nation, marking Oct. 29, the 96th Republic Day.

“I thank all of our friends, who share the happiness of this important turning point of our history. I congratulate the 96th year of the declaration of our republic,” he added.

Since then, Turkey celebrates the Republic Day every Oct. 29.
