TOBB President Hisarcıklıoğlu stated that Muslims are possessed of prudence and insight, "Then we must foil the ploys of the merchants of chaos and those who would engender pandemonium. As the business community, we appreciate more and more the value of stability today. I see the steps that Mr. President takes to emphasize the unity in our country and protect stability. On behalf of myself and our community, I also thank him for all his effort and enthusiasm. Of course there are strains, but we believe in ourselves and our country. Despite every obstacle, we have proven once more how dynamic and productive we are with our growth figures. With the cooperation of the private sector and the state, we’ve overcome a lot of problems.”

Hisarcıklıoğlu said that some circles want to exacerbate Turkey’s economic situation, “We must tighten ranks against them. We must maintain confidence and stability. Hopefully after 24th June, we will work with our government intensively and again, we will overcome all problems. No matter how hard the time is, Ramadan means grace, fruitfulness and compassion. And certainly, Allah possesses power and might to turn all the shadows are into beneficence. May Allah keep our country and nation from all kinds of shame, persecution and darkness. May Allah make it so that the whole Islamic world attain peace, prosperity and solidarity.”
