First Minister of Scotland Nicola Sturgeon MSP’s Anniversary Message

“Scotland and Turkey have strong links. Our two countries continue to build our relationship in a number of key areas. In addition to our business links, we also have academic partnerships which exist between Higher Education establishments in Scotland and Turkey. We value the contribution the Turkish community makes to Scotland’s culture and economy.

The Centre for Turkey Studies provides a forum for discussion with a range of stakeholders to bring both countries together, which promotes bilateral relationships between the United Kingdom and Turkey. I welcome the work of the Centre for Turkey Studies and their achievements and hope that they continue to provide such an important for discussion.”
