“I sincerely congratulate the Turkic world on October 3, which is celebrated as the Day of Cooperation of Turkic States... The centuries-old fraternal ties between the Turkic countries strengthened on the basis of a common language, history, and cultural heritage, have become seriously institutionalized within our organization since 2009. Having voluntarily united under the auspices of the UTC, the Turkic states are decisively stepping into the future, promoting comprehensive cooperation in the political, economic, cultural, and social spheres,” the document says.
