Turkish deputy PM says that Turks in Bulgaria act like bridges between two countries

Turkey’s Deputy Prime Minister Bekir Bozdag said Tuesday that Turks living in Bulgaria were acting like bridges between two countries.

“The social, political, and cultural relations between the neighbouring countries Turkey and Bulgaria are so strong,” said Bozdag during his 3-day visit in Bulgaria adding he believed the relations would even get better.

Turkish businessmen have been encouraged to invest in Bulgaria, he said, and emphasised Turkey’s position in the world with its economy, politics, and legal system.

Bozdag focused on the importance that Turkey attached to Turks in Bulgaria and said, “Wherever in the world there is a friend and relative of Turkey, the welfare of the friend will be shared by 76 million people in Turkey as well as the pain of the friend.”

As part of his program, Bozdag also attended a fast-breaking meal organised by Istanbul’s Bayrampasa Municipality, which held the fast-breaking meals during the holy month Ramadan in 9 countries in the Balkans.
