"And I have found both freedom and safety in my madness, the freedom of loneliness and the safety from being understood, for those who understand us enslave something in us. But let me not be too proud of my safety. Even a Thief in a jail is safe from another thief. "

Turkey strives for a better common future in the Middle East (Ahmet Davutoglu- The Daily Star)

Peoples are bound together by deep rooted, historical ties. They have lived together for centuries and today, they continue to share the same geography, face the same challenges and opportunities. Their common vision of peace and stability in the Middle East and prosperity for their peoples has drawn them even closer.

Reflecting this long and common history, we share a vast cultural heritage which is still alive in our daily lives today. In this context, one can cite monuments such as the Grand Serail that houses the prime minister’s office today or the watch tower in Tripoli, among many others.
