Deputy Secretary-General of the Turkish Presidency Prof Ibrahim Kalin yesterday underlined the significance of the visit of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to the State of Qatar in light of the current critical circumstances in the region and the world.
“The visit aims to review the distinct bilateral relations in all political, economic, trade and tourism areas, along with other key regional issues of mutual concern such as the situation in Syria, Iraq and Yemen, and other international issues,” he said while talking to media after opening the Turkish School in Doha. Prof. Kalin praised the close contacts and consultations between Emir H H Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani and the Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
He said that due to high-level exchanged visits between the two countries, the coming period will witness further cooperation and mutual coordination in all fields. He said that opening the Turkish School in Doha will contribute to further promoting the Qatari-Turkish relations in all areas, mainly in the educational and cultural fields.
Principal of the Turkish School Mehmet Ali said that the first Turkish school in Qatar included the primary, preparatory and secondary stages, and currently had 50 students and 17 teachers.
In addition to the Turkish Curriculum, the school provides the Qatari history, Arabic and Islamic Studies, he noted, hailing the support and assistance provided by the Ministry of Education and Higher Education for the opening of school, which in turn will contribute to organizing a number of cultural and scientific activities in Qatar.
