Firudin Fazil Ozsoy - Chairman of the Federation of East Anatolian Journalists: - First of all, I express my gratitude for the conditions created for us in Nakhchivan. The purpose of our visit to this ancient Azerbaijani land is to get acquainted with Nakhchivan and to discuss opportunities for cooperation between the mass media of the autonomous republic and media organs operating in the Eastern Anatolia Region of Turkey. I would like to note that cooperation between Turkey and Azerbaijan, which are "A nation, two states", should be developed in all spheres as well as in mass media, Eastern Anatolia should be closer to Nakhchivan and Nakhchivan to Eastern Anatolia. I think that both sides have great potential in this area. At the same time we have a deep historical, religious and cultural commitment. We can take advantage of all these opportunities to promote the rich cultural, economic and tourism potential of both sides and contribute to the cooperation between our countries. I believe we will achieve these goals together. Nakhchivan has passed a great way of development in recent years. Modern and comfortable roads of the city, modern buildings, beautiful streets and avenues are a sign of Nakhchivan's comprehensive development. I hope that the cooperation of information agencies of both sides will play an important role in promoting the comprehensive potential of Nakhchivan.

Ali Er - the chairman of Malatya Journalists' Association, the founder of the "Son Soz" newspaper: - Nakhchivan is an ancient Turkic land, I heard its name from my childhood but has never seen it, it shares border with our country. I knew that this land had ancient history and culture. Today I have witnessed it. Even though we had short time, we got acquainted with the city, and attended "Beekeeping products - honey festival". Indeed, we saw that Nakhchivan was a city breathing with history and culture. The beauty of the city admired us. We appreciate  cleanliness of Nakhchivan and hospitality of residents very much. I will try to share this to all our readers of Malatya.




Mujahid Ozdemir - deputy chairman of the Erzinjan Journalists' Association, founder of "Doghu" newspaper: - I also visit Nakhchivan for the first time. It is very proud to be here in this ancient land of Azerbaijan, which is a neighbor of Turkey. Because Nakhchivan is a land preserving ancient Turkic history. While touring the city, we got acquainted with the magnificent historical monuments of Turkish and Islamic culture. For example, the mausoleum of Momina khatin made a great impression on me. Unfortunately, as the region where I live is an active seismic zone, many monuments of ancient times have been ruined by earthquakes. However, Nakhchivan is able to present this cultural richness to everyone by preserving such historical monuments. At the same time, I liked the cleanliness of Nakhchivan, the comfort of the roads, the greenery. I think every Turkish citizen should know Nakhchivan better. I hope our mutual cooperation will allow this.
