Marsha de Cordova MP’s 6th Anniversary Message


CEFTUS has played a fantastic role in building relationships between the UK and Turkey. The debates, roundtables and community events have created a space for discussion and dialogue on a whole range of issues relating to Turkey and the wider region. They have also helped to build bridges between communities, celebrating the huge social, cultural and economic contribution that Turkish, Kurdish, and Turkish Cypriot communities make to British life. I want to wish CEFTUS every success in the coming year!
