In Croatia, the Turkish language courses for the police were started in the country by the Yunus Emre Institute Zagreb (YEE) in cooperation with the Croatian Police Academy.
Turkish Ambassador to Zagreb Yavuz Selim Kiran, Head of the Croatian Police Academy Josip Cilic and Zagreb Coordinator Fuat Korkmaz attended the program that was held in the capital, Zagreb, on the occasion of the start of the courses.
In his speech here, Kiran congratulated every member of the Croatian Police Department for choosing the Turkish language and said: “With the memorandum of understanding signed between the two ministries of interior during the visit of our President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the Turkish and Croatian police officers who will be on duty at the border will be able to communicate in Turkish thanks to the courses that Provided by YEE”. He said.
Noting that communication and coordination between the security personnel of the two countries will gradually strengthen with the Turkish courses, Kiran expressed his desire to continue the increased cooperation in the fields of security, border security and irregular migration.
Noting that the Turkish language will be an important factor in career planning, Cilic stated that they are working on a Croatian-Turkish dictionary with YEE this year, which will include road, border and traffic terms.
While 99 police officers participated in the Turkish online and face-to-face courses, the trainees trained with Ambassador Kiran within the scope of the first lesson.
Kiran also gave the police Turkish coffee and Turkish delight.
