Turkish Defense Industry

  • This article you will read constitutes the third and last of our articles titled SADAT Defense and Proxy Wars. Although SADAT Defense is a defense consultancy company, unlike the private military companies of western imperialist countries, it does not create blood and tears in the countries they serve in, and operates the activities as a guarantee of peace and tranquility.

    Moreover, they perform their service in these countries in accordance with the laws and regulations of Turkey and the countries they serve. While carrying out these activities, it does not endeavor to siphon the national income of the countries they serve, but to carry it out with a service-based approach with a small profit.

    The main purpose is not to have commercial gain but to work for the realization of strategic actions that will ensure peace in these countries where blood of our brothers is shed.
