Mr. Ambassador Ibragim Dzhunusov has only been here for six months. I have many Ambassador friends in Ankara . But we are safe to say that; H.E. Dzhunusov has conducted activities that can be possible with 6-year study only in 6 months. I congratulate Mr. Ambassador here, before you. Turkic world has lost a lot because of the conditions in the past years years. We have performed close to 100 operations in one year to close this gap. Half of them took place in Turkey and the other half took place in Kyrgyzstan. We underline an example within our people-oriented activities; there are three derivatives which in a sense are similar; plants, animals and humans. Three of which are, to eat, to drink and to die. What distinguishes people from animals and plants (the service and works of human beings.) The most beautiful task among these works is to train people. People become immortal with what they left. Our ancestors, ancestors left traces in history, they did not eat and drink only. Hopefully if we act together with this awareness we will build a nice peaceful, livable world in the future. Mr. Ambassador has a remark; Kyrgyzstan has a red flag, that has sun on it. Turkey has also a flag that is red, which has moon and star on it. Half of the there is the sun and half of it passes with moon and star. Turkey-Kyrgyzstan will illuminate the world for 24 hours. Nowadays, especially when we need Peace and Brotherhood most, I hope the mutual friendship between Kyrgyzstan- Turkey would be an example to the mankind the world would attain peace.
Prof. Fahrettin Keleştemur ; We are brother countries, we came from there. I am extremely happy to see you here. Now we are able to go between our countries that was not possible in the past. We organize mutual visits, meetings. World has been losing the humanity within, and has been damaged by the monsters it has created. Environmental pollution, for instance, is getting huge. We are the ones who can solve all these devastation. Because we inherit from our civilization. In fact in order to reflect it, we need to be strong. Today, strength is based on produce knowledge, being an information society. We need to cooperate with you in this regard. We need to compound our scientific power and benefit the other places and information in the world.
