Speaking about the event, Girne Mayor Nidai Güngördü said they wanted to make a contribution to the memorial forest created in memory of Turkish Cypriot mountaineer Birkan Uzun, who lost his life as a result of an unfortunate accident, and that they will mobilize all their means in the future to keep the name of this young man, who set out with the goal of 7 Continents and 7 Summits, and who flew the Turkish Cypriot Flag.
Güngördü stated that this effort of Birkan Uzun is very important for the Turkish Cypriot youth and that he established a place in everyone’s hearts with the message he published at the last summit climb in Antarctica.
