Ersin Tatar, the President of the National Unity Party, also expressed his happiness to be present at an artistic event at the Near East University and said "We have been meeting with our relatives from Central Asia through these activities. The main ancestors of the Turkish Cypriots came from the Central Asia, and Kazakhs, Azeris, Kirghiz and Turkmens are always relatives. This kind of an event reflecting the roots of our history in the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus and the fusion of cultures in the exhibitions is strengthening the bonds between us through a civilized behavior. Therefore, this policy and investment of the Near East University has made us very happy. I would like to express my gratitude to the artists of Kazakhstan."
Ersin Tatar said that all the works will be stored in the archives and find their values in history and in future.
