It aims to increase the number of Turkish Knowledge Foundation (TMV) schools in Serbia.
Turkish Ambassador to Belgrade Hami Aksoy and Board Member of the Turkish Maarif Foundation Mahmut Özdil visited schools in Belgrade affiliated with TMV.
Speaking to Anadolu Agency (AA), Aksoy said that TMV schools are very prestigious educational institutions and the number of students has exceeded 700.
Noting that students are receiving their education in good conditions, Hami Aksoy said, “TMV operates in 52 countries, it is really our pride. He represents Türkiye abroad very well. As Embassy of the Republic of Turkey, we work side by side with them in solidarity. We visit these schools frequently, meet with our students, and plan an event on April 23rd.” Use phrases.
Ambassador Aksoy said:
There has been a great interaction between the Serbian people and the Turkish people lately. The number of tourists visiting our country from Serbia increased by 50 percent last year, exceeding 360 thousand. Similarly, the number of tourists from Türkiye to Serbia accounted for 25 percent. Two years ago, we started direct flights to Ankara from Belgrade. We added Izmir for this year. In other words, they will be able to travel directly from Belgrade to Izmir. Especially since Kusadasi is a very popular destination. That’s why I find it important. They can also go to Cappadocia from Ankara, there has been a huge increase in that and Air Serbia has started to fly, so there are eight flights a week to Ankara. These are really important developments.”
Stating that the political relations between Serbia and Turkey are at the best level in history, Hami Aksoy said that President Recep Tayyip Erdogan expressed this during his recent visit to Serbia.
Aksoy thanked the Serbian government in this regard, pointing out that Serbia has provided strong support to Turkey in the fight against the FETÖ, and that it has not given the members of the terrorist organization any shelter.
“We expect an increase in the number of students in Serbia”
TMV Özdil board member also stated that schools opened mainly in the Balkan countries and that Serbia was the only Balkan country that closed schools affiliated with the FETÖ.
Pointing out that their school provided education in Belgrade at the request of the Serbian authorities, Özdil said:
“Starting next year, we will start our activities in the city of Novi Pazar, the most important representative of the multi-identity and multicultural structure of Serbia. I hope that we will start serving the people of Novi Pazar with a nursery school there. We expect an increase in the number of students in Serbia. With the growth of students in our primary school, our school is growing Also. In the kindergarten chain, we are already among the three best school chains in Belgrade. We expect an increase and development in both capacity and quality there. There is great confidence in Turkey, Turkish institutions and Turks in Serbia. Therefore, the demand for schools has increased since we took over these schools. Belgrade residents entrust their children to Turkish institutions with peace of mind.”
