Prof. Dr. Derviş Kılınçkaya, who made a speech at a seminar organized for the 103rd anniversary of the Çanakkale Victory, explained students that they should be the individuals who own their countries and he emphasized that there will be times that they will need to do sacrifices for the countries.

Derviş Kılınçkaya emphasized that "the nation is a continuity" during his speech and he added that every generation should possess their nation even more from the previous generation.
