CIR’s president meets with Turkish scientists
Last year’s 600th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Turkey and Poland reminded us of the times our countries were close to each another. It is via Turkey that Poland was discovering “Oriental flavours”, and the Ottoman Empire, struggling against Poland, was learning Europe. The motto of the celebrations – “Old friends, new leaders” – rightly focuses upon the present. Poland and Turkey do possess a potential and are leaders in their regions – said Małgorzata Bonikowska, CIR’s president, during a meeting with representatives of Turkish universities, working upon a project “Turkish-Islamic culture and civilisation in the Balkans and further”.
