"Turkey will be even more attractive to investors", the president said.

On April 18, Erdogan called for snap presidential and parliamentary elections on June 24, instead of in November 2019 as originally scheduled, saying Turkey must shift quickly to an executive presidency.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan pledged on Sunday that his party will strive to maintain national security and peace, and achieve its goals under the new executive presidency to be adopted following the election in June.

Speaking to thousands of supporters in Istanbul, Erdogan said Turkey's operations along its southern border would continue "until not a single terrorist is left".

Ekşioğlu, who always emphasizes a strong Turkish-Iranian cooperation in his articles, might have an important role in Turkey-Iran relations if elected.

Turkey is now carrying out an offensive into northern Syria's Afrin region against the Syrian Kurdish YPG militia, which Ankara considers a terrorist organisation linked to Kurdish militants waging an insurgency on Turkish soil.

Ahead of the elections, Turkey will roll out a debt restructuring and social reforms package costing almost $6 billion, Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said on Wednesday.

Erdogan highlighted the importance of the current Operation Olive Branch in Syria.

"In the new term, Turkey will add new operations to the Euphrates Shield and Olive Branch operations", Erdogan said in reference to a cross-border offensive in Syria 2016 and to the one in Afrin. Cavusoglu said the operation was still on the agenda.

Referring to the country's new constitution, he said: "In this new democratic system, stability will become permanent". The country would "take the stage as a global power", he vowed.

The elections are hugely important as they will transform Turkey's governing system to an executive presidency, ushering in a constitutional change that was narrowly approved in a referendum previous year. There altogether 18 constitutional amendments.
