Ilsur Metshin met with the Consul General of Turkey in Kazan

The Mayor congratulated Mr. Dogan on his birthday and wished him success in his new position.

(KZN.RU, May 15, Ksenia Shvetsova). Today Ilsur Metshin, the Mayor of Kazan, met with the Consul General of Turkey in Kazan. The head of the capital of Tatarstan congratulated Mr. Ahmet Sadyk Dogan on his birthday and wished him success in his new position as head of the Consulate General of the Republic of Turkey in Kazan.

Ilsur Metshin noted that long friendly relations link the Republic of Tatarstan and the Republic of Turkey. Today Kazan is a sister city of four Turkish cities: Eskisehir, Istanbul, Antalya, and Ankara. “Over more than 20 years of history, our cooperation with the Republic of Turkey has been developing well in all major areas: economy, industry, politics, healthcare, and much more. Our states are separated by a great distance, but this never hindered the development of our friendly relations and a productive exchange of experience”, said the Mayor.

He also added that Kazan citizens appreciate the possibility of direct flights to Turkey and are grateful to Turkish airlines, which carry out daily direct flights to Istanbul. “Istanbul is one of the largest hubs and the most beautiful cities in the world”, marked I. Metshin. He added that strengthening of Kazan's cooperation with Turkish cities, exchange of experience and joint work open great prospects for both states. “We hope that we will continue our cooperation with your arrival. I am sure that our cooperation will help us to realize many new projects useful both for the residents of the Republic of Tatarstan and for the people of the Republic of Turkey”, said the Mayor.

Ahmet Sadyk Dogan thanked Ilsur Metshin for his congratulations and shared his impressions of Kazan. According to the Consul General, he arrived in the capital of Tatarstan in January this year. “We already had time to get acquainted with the city, we feel at home here”, said the Consul General. “Kazan is a very important city for us. We will do everything possible to strengthen cooperation between the City Hall of Kazan and the City Hall of Istanbul”. He reminded that 2019 was declared a “bond” year of culture and tourism between Turkey and Russia. “We would like Kazan to hold various events in Turkey, and we would like to hold our events here”, said Ahmed Sadyk Dogan. He expressed the hope that a Turkish cultural center will appear in Kazan like in Moscow, where the center of Turkish culture named after Yunus Emre opened recently.

At the end of the meeting, Ilsur Metshin wished successes to the Consul General in his new position and expressed the hope that the cooperation between Russia and Turkey will be strengthened.

Daria Sannikova, the chairman of the Committee for Tourism Development, took part in the meeting, which was held in the Kazan City Hall.
