We had the 1st symposium in Seoul, Korea last April under the theme of “Scientific Collaboration between Korea and Turkey” and it was very successful. As it is well known, the history of relationship between Korea and Turkey is more than 60 years. The start of the friendship between us dates back around 60 years from today. In the midst of the Korean War, a group of young men from Turkey arrived in Korea, a country they had never known. They were the brave and proud Turk responding to the call of the international community to fight for freedom and to protect peace on the Korean Peninsula to save and to protect its people.”
