WHAT THEY SAY FOR ATATÜRK!

Iraq

Naming General Mustafa Kemal as Atatürk shows us the respect his nation feels for him. After the Ottoman Empire lost the 1st World War, he managed to fight and save the honour of his country and succeeded in bringning his country to a new development phase.

It is quite natural that Atatürk’s life is emphasized whenever one mentions the history of the 20th century because he is one of the best examples of brave soldiers who are always ready and willing to transform defeat into victory, to change the situation of a collapsing country to an evaluation phase in their feelings of discipline and responsibility.

Although the master plan of Atatürk aims to westernize Modern Turkey, his efforts to bring his country to the level where it can meet the requirements of the political status of the century, his efforts to develop his country in economic, social and cultural fields are realities that can never be denied.

Atatürk did not leave a child. However, this great nation will always remember him, saying, “You are my father, the reason of my being, your name will always live in our hearts with respect and blessings.”
