‘’We have gathered here today to extend our gratitude to you with this gesture: the Medal of TURKSOY dedicated to the 25th anniversary of the independence of Turkic republics is of great symbolic importance to us. Indeed, we have celebrated the 25th anniversary of the independence of Turkic republics  with many joyful events last year. Many of you have shared this enthusiasm and joy of us  and showed us that we are not alone in the pursuit of our goals and ideals. We thank you from the bottom of our heart for your contribution and support for your efforts aiming at the unity  of the Turkic World and the prosperity of Turkic culture as well as for your dedication to your  nation and to humanity.


TURKSOY carries out its activities despite its limited resources but thanks to our scholars, artists, intellectuals, businessmen and diplomats we are always confident that we will succeed in our endeavours.

I can easily say that the medals we are going to extend to you today as a sign of gratitude are also the key to TURKSOY. They stand as a proof of the fact that we consider you as the owners and staff members of our organization. Next year, we will be celebrating the 25th anniversary of our organization. Today, TURKSOY is an organization of cultural cooperation which is well-known and respected worldwide. This is the result of our common efforts. It is our common success.’’
