But I am of the opinion that that we shouldn’t ignore thinking as an institution. I also think that we should consider this issue in general, understand and imagine what kind of thinking we are guided by, how this institution meets our needs, requirements and interests, and, of course, what reforms should be made to our thinking, to achieve the goals we are formulating,” stated the Prime Minister in his speech.
