Pak-Turk delegation visit Balochistan Chief Minister


Date posted: December 19, 2013

Chief Minister of the province Balochistan, Pakistan, Abdul Malik Baloch received a delegation of Pak-Turk Schools’ and several other affiliated institutions’ officials at his residential office. The delegation included the schools’ General Manager, Unal Tosur; Deputy General Manager, Fesih Celik; Kimse Yok Mu Foundation’s representative to Pakistan, Ozcan Inan; the businessmen association Radiant’s Secretary General, Huseyin Yilmaz, and the dialog center Rumi Forum’s President, Suat Erguvan.

The general manager Tosur spoke on behalf of the delegation: “We as Pak-Turk schools have been operating at 22 facilities in 4 provinces across Pakistan. As far as we have observed, like in many Muslim countries, three big problems exist in Pakistan: ignorance, poverty and disunity. Pak-Turk Schools are trying their best to curb the first one, ignorance. As for poverty, I believe, we will be able to alleviate it, to some extent, through the prospective cooperation among the two countries’ businessmen and alms giving. Lastly, in an effort to achieve unity and solidarity, dialogue platforms alongside various gatherings will pave the way.”

In an expression of gratitude for the schools’ and affiliated institutions’ efforts, Baloch said, “We as Pakistanis are most like Turks, who are very dear to us. What I would like you to do is to show a particular interest to Balochistan. I would like you to home in on our province as Balochistan needs what you’ve just mentioned more than any other province.” The visit came to an end with a group picture and Tosur’s presenting a memento to the minister Baloch.
