İKCU leads Turkish University
Boom Osir Dulam, Chief Adviser to the President on Mongolian Cultural and Religious Policy, greets all the stakeholders who supported the workshop on behalf of the President. Drawing attention to the importance of the remnants of Turkish history on Mongolian soil, Dulam said: We should continue our work in various fields with the friendly attitude and support of the two countries. We want to expand the range of our common interests. The Western world still views nomadic culture as barbaric, obscene, and barbaric. But this idea is not scientifically accepted. The Mongol and Turkish people were nomads. Our ancestors were not barbarians, they were the founders of a great civilization. He said the historical monuments of the two countries are evidence of the great civilization established by our ancestors.

Praise for İKÇÜ’s efforts
Okal Oguz, President of the National Commission for UNESCO Turkey, says that Turkey’s place in the list of heritage increases every year with the leadership of the Ministry of Culture and Tourism and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the contribution of their diplomacy and commission. Oguz said, “Turkey is in the 16th place in the list of UNESCO with a total of 19 traditional sites. Of course, we have many areas with rich cultural heritage. In that sense, it is possible we should be in the top five. However, no application was made in these cases within the stipulated time. We have gained a lot of experience in this field in recent years. We have 84 entities in our provisional list. After these 84 years, we will only be able to melt the heritage list. In this sense, we are the first country in the world to wait for those who are on the list. Mongolia works intensively in terms of its own cultural heritage. We thank you for this sensitive approach to preserving the heritage, including the Gokturk monument, which covers the Arkhon Valley, for these efforts involving Turkish resources. Collaboration with this approach needs to be supported. Welcomes the continuity of the process in Mongolia; We appreciate the initiative and foresight of 7K7. ”
A rare university is apt for its slogan
Rahman Nurdun, vice-president of TİKA, said he was pleased with the steps taken by them since the 1990s. “Today is a really important day,” said Nurdun, referring to the slogan “We are aware, we are different”. As for TIKA, we are discussing an effort that started in the second half of the 90’s. İKÇÜ is one of the rare universities that works in this field supported by TIKA. Now I can better understand the slogan “We are aware, we are different”. The Turkish Monuments Project (MOTAP) in Mongolia, the Turkish Monuments Project in Mongolia (MOTAP), the Höşöö Tsaydam Museum of the Göktürk period and the Bilge Kagan Highway and Höşöö Tsaydam Museum in Karakorum district of Övörhangai province were built under our direction. Our President has visited the region several times. Again at their direction, after their last visit, a modern road was built in the Tonikuk inscription. Again, a tender will be held this year for the construction of a modern museum to preserve the Tonyukuk inscriptions. For the contribution of İKÇÜ to the work of our state in Mongolia, Professor. Dr. I congratulate Saffet Köse. “
İKÇÜ Turkey could become the center of world studies
Ankara Hachi Bayram Valley University faculty member Professor. Dr. Ruhi Ersay said he believed that the 7KÇÜ to be held in Izmir would be a pioneer in future research on Turkish world. This workshop is a precursor to her. I sincerely believe that İKÇÜ, which includes valuable professors like Şaban Dogan and Ömür Ceylan, will make a valuable contribution in this regard. As we see today, Turkey has become the center of Turkish world and Turkology. It continues to do so with both academic and political action. We proudly pursue inventory research of Turkish history, presentation of patterns in folklore, and excavation research. We see that the philosophy of the inscriptions, the documents that we gave to the world at that time, not only war and organization, but also the wisdom of the world today to imitate the message. Arkhan inscriptions are of interest not only to Turkologists, but also to other fields of science. “
Turkey is closely interested in Turkish inscriptions in Mongolia
The president of the organizing committee of the first workshop, Professor. Dr. Shaban Dogan said the second workshop would be held in Mongolia. During the session, all the details of the project of transporting historical monuments carried out by the Mongolia Cultural Heritage Center will be shared by the historians who participated in the project.

We will hear details of the project from the officials of the Mongolia Cultural Heritage Center and presentations about the center carrying the project. We will try to explain to our speakers the importance of Turkish inscriptions in Mongolia in terms of Turkish language, history and culture. And was transferred to the center and we will discuss the transfer of the inscription to future generations.
