DERYA ORS, PRESIDENT, ATATURK SUPREME COUNCIL FOR CULTURE, LANGUAGE AND HISTORY:
- I feel the author's desire to make this country eternal. These initiatives affect the state’s important aspects. I would call this article the World Manifesto because, not only the people should be eternal, but also the state. In this regard, this article is very important for all of us.
A Former Minister of Culture of Turkey, Namik Kemal Zeybek, highlighted the far-sighted policy of the Kazakh leader. He also believes that Nursultan Nazarbayev's initiatives are up to date and relevant for his country.
HALYUK IPEK, CHAIRMAN, GRAND NATIONAL ASSEMBLY OF TURKEY:
- The head of state in his article has clearly defined the pulse of time. I cite: "Before our eyes, the world is beginning a new, largely obscure and historical cycle. It is impossible to occupy a place in an advanced group by preserving the previous model of consciousness and thinking. Therefore, it is important to concentrate, to change ourselves and through adaptation to change conditions, to take the best of what the new era bears." The leader of the nation calls his people to modernize public consciousness. This treatment will help to strengthen the stability and unity of the people.
Representatives of the Turkish intellectuals highlighted that the initiatives presented in the program article of Nursultan Nazarbayev are of great importance not only for Kazakhstan, but also for the modernization of the public consciousness of all Turkic-speaking peoples. Experts and political scientists wished the Kazakh people to realize all the tasks.
