Turkey Pres­i­dent Er­do­gan voice mes­sage sur­prises mo­bile users

Kuwait Times - - INTERNATIONAL -

When mak­ing a so­cial phone call, you don’t ex­pect to hear the voice of the head of state. But mo­bile phone users in Turkey were sur­prised to hear a voice mes­sage by Pres­i­dent Re­cep Tayyip Er­do­gan when plac­ing a call around mid­night on the an­niver­sary of the failed July 15 coup. Af­ter di­alling a num­ber, in­stead of hear­ing a dial tone users heard a voice mes­sage from Er­do­gan con­grat­u­lat­ing them on the na­tional hol­i­day of “democ­racy and unity” that marks the coup’s de­feat. Only af­ter Er­do­gan’s mes­sage did the di­al­tone be­gin. “As pres­i­dent, I send con­grat­u­la­tions on the July 15 Na­tional Day of Democ­racy and Unity and wish the mar­tyrs mercy and the he­roes (of the de­feat of the coup) health and well­be­ing,” said the mes­sage read by Er­do­gan. The mes­sage could be heard on Turkey’s largest net­work Turk­cell, AFP cor­re­spon­dents said.
