The Turkish Union of Solidarity Association and Turkish Cypriot Azerbaijan Friendship Association organized the Turkish World Educational Leaders Forum.

The Minister of Tourism and Environment, Fikri Ataoglu, attended the Gala Dinner and was delighted that the participants were happy to be in the TRNC.

Minister Ataoglu, met with the participants of the Forum which was attended by 100 educators from 6 countries, and presented reciprocal gifts on the night which was attended by Azerbaijani Deputies, Deputy Minister of Diaspora and former Minister of National Education Mustafa Arabacıoğlu.

Ataoğlu emphasized the necessity of knowing that those coming to the TRNC are not guests but hosts, “you are welcome to your own home. We cannot be apart. We are brothers who all live in the same geography and in different geographies. Fortunately, the Turkish Union Solidarity Association brought us together. You need us, we need you too. Power balances in the world are also changing. We are one, we will not destroy anyone”.  He also expressed satisfaction with the 5-day workshop.
