WHAT THEY SAY FOR ATATÜRK!

Belgium

Atatürk’s death is a great loss not only for Turkey but also for the whole world.

Former Belgian Ambassador to Ankara

Atatürk was the greatest symbol of capability and talent. He is the man who created the greatest reality of the 20th Century.

In Ankara, I would look at the sun. However, I wouldn’t see the sun in the horizon but I would see it in Çankaya. Sincerely, I believed that the real sun was the one at Çankaya.

The loss of Atatürk is a cause of great sorrow throughout the world. The King of Belgium, who always admired his high creativity and determined character, has sent me to this burrial ceremony to express his feelings.

Belgiums mourns with you sincerely. The ceremony held at the National Assembly is a proof of it.

De RAYMOND, Former Belgian Ambassador to Ankara

Mustafa Kemal has achieved an extraordinary development for his country while everyone believed everything lost.

Henri LIEBRECHT

Turkey’s international reputation, prestige and authority has risen to its peak.

The only statesman to serve his country this efficiently in such a short period is Atatürk.

Libre Belgique Newspaper

A leader that devoted his reformist ambition to his nation.
