Türkiye has become an indispensable and efficient actor for global peace and security, Defense Minister Yaşar Güler has said, recalling the country's role in preventing and de-escalating regional conflicts.

"Our country is an indispensable and efficient actor in international platforms in preventing regional conflicts and de-escalating them," Defense Minister Güler said in a videoconference he held with the participation of Chief of General Staff Gen.
