Traditional Iftar Dinner of TURKSOY
The traditional Iftar Dinner of the International Organization of Turkic Culture TURKSOY took place in Ankara on May 27th, 2019.
The Iftar Dinner gathered ambassadors and representatives of diplomatic missions of countries of the Turkic World to Ankara along with personalities and representatives of institutions and organizations which support activities carried out by TURKSOY to foster the cultural integration of Turkic peoples.
In the speech he delivered at the Iftar Dinner, TURKSOY Secretary General Dusen Kasseinov stressed the importance attached by TURKSOY to coming together and sharing precious moments with its friends and said this Iftar Dinner is all the more so meaningful for him as he was entrusted with the duty of TURKSOY Secretary General on the same date 11 years ago. Mr. Kasseinov who stressed that since then, he always felt the strong support and solidarity of TURKSOY's project partners, further added: "We are determined to introduce the common history and values of all countries of the Turkic World on a global scale. The heritage we will leave behind for future generations will be the strong and long-lasting ties we have built hand in hand with you through cultural diplomacy. Of course the key to our success in further assuming this mission are the confidence and trust in TURKSOY as well as the valuable support of our friends worldwide."
The Iftar Dinner ended with a cinevision featuring promotional films on traditional activities carried out by TURKSOY on an international level.
