And, it is in a race to present what he discovered as a wealth in the name of humanity, both in the artistic and scientific fields. There was also Günsel car, which we watched in this race last week proudly. Günsel’s magnificent outlook and creating such a thing in the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, as we have seen in the press, made a great impact especially in our neighbor and in the world. This longing is not only for the vehicle made in the Republic of Northern Cyprus. I also expressed this great development at an international conference I attended the other day. After this issue came to the agenda, I noted that people’s interests really came to a much higher level towards us. Therefore, I would like to congratulate those who brought us to today and all our academicians once again, and let me to say that we are following these developments at Near East University very closely.”

I have given many awards at this university, but for the first time, I would be honored and exited to present this award for the first time. In addition, I am longing for the date of November 15, 2020, and I will have a different peace that day. Because even seeing that richness at this university adds more and more excitement to my feelings.”
