In his speech, Girne Mayor Nidai Güngördü pointed out that the artist is one of the most important examples of how the Turkish Cypriots can achieve very important production and work in the field of art. Nidai Güngördı stated that there is tolerance, peace and fraternity in the place where art is, and he expressed his belief that a life intertwined with art will enrich the country further.
