This one is the school in Sana, there are more than 600 students. 60 teachers work here of which 19 colleagues are from Turkey. We are very happy, it offers a very successful education. All authorities we met in Sana agreed that the schools were very successful.”

Thanking everyone who contributed to the opening of schools, Arinc said: “I give my thanks to all my brothers and sisters who came here from Turkey with enthusiasm to open these schools and who enjoy working here with devotion and pleasure. “May God be pleased with everybody who conduct such kind of service in these countries and who introduce our flag, our Turkish National Anthem and our Turkish language to the world”, he said.
