In this program, the interviews conducted with the former Foreign Minister of Turkey, H.E. Ali Babacan (current Deputy Prime Minister of Turkey) and former Consulate General of Turkey, H.E. Omer Onhon (current Turkish Ambassador to Syria) prior the given reception of the 80th Anniversary Celebration of Republic of Turkey at the Turkish House in New York City on October 29, 2003.
As a volunteer base organization, the producer and organization had faced multiple difficulties in the following months and years, in particular, with shortage human resources/staff and also new emerging timely issues, caused long delay for several years.
The occasion of the 88th Anniversary of Republic of Turkey, which inspired to complete this program. Since the core ideas of the formation of Republic of Turkey, has been one of the most important and unchangeable historic facts, in particular, for Turkey as well as world-wide; the producer has put in her efforts to make the contents and spirit of the two interviews available on the web both as full transcription (friendly on-line version) and as a 28:30 minutes video program.
With that, we aim to keep the original idea and spirit alive, thus the two video interviews incorporated along with some scenes from the given reception for the 80th Anniversary Celebration, which took place at the Turkish House on October 29, 2003, and dedicated to the 88th Anniversary Celebration of Republic of Turkey.
