Turkish President Ahmet Necdet Sezer reiterated the importance of secularism, and the solidarity of the Turkish people in his Ramadan Festival message...
President Sezer said days like Ramadan Festival make it even more important that optimism and peace and quiet become a reality in the community. Unity, tolerance and love are common things that do away with ill feelings and help us to share common values said Mr. Sezer. He added that these important days, calls us to wish for the forgetting of ill feelings and furthering of tolerance in the community along with the continuing development of our country for a better future.
President Sezer said Turkey, is a state which holds dearly the values of democracy, secularism and social law. He added these values were set up through guidance of great statesman Mustafa Kemal Atatürk. The introduction of secularism in Turkey was by far the most important step taken by Turkey in its path towards contemporary statehood said Mr. Sezer.
President Sezer wished a happy Ramadan Festival to all Turks living in and outside Turkey, and the Moslem world as well as peace and brotherhood to all nations of the world.
