Ankara, February 26. Two years after Russia’s occupation of Crimea, the Platform of Crimean Tatar Organizations in Turkey and Culture and Mutual Assistance Society of Crimean Tatars (Dernek, Ankara) held an event called ‘Two years after Russia’s occupation of Crimea: Talking about Crimea’.
In a telegram sent to Tunger Kalkai, Chairman of the Culture and Mutual Assistance Society of Crimean Tatars, Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu confirmed Turkey’s commitment to continuing support of Crimean Tatars in Crimea.
“I appreciate the invitation and respectfully welcome all the guests and those who made the event, which is meant to raise international awareness of the problem, possible,” said Davutoglu.
Davutoglu offered his apologies for not being able to attend the event due to busy schedule.
“It is to be greatly regretted that one of the most horrendous crimes in the history of mankind – the 1944 deportation of Crimean Tatars – has been stirred afresh in our memory. I wish none of them had to live through such a disaster. And today we are on the side of our Crimean Tatar brothers in their just struggle. I want you to know that the health and wellbeing of our next of kin in Crimea matters a lot to us”, said Davutoglu.
Ahmet Davutoglu concluded his telegram by saying: “I wish our brothers good health and extend my sincerest gratitude to the guests and organizers of the event”.
