Ambassador Savut delivered a speech about the good relations of Brazil and Turkey and took the opportunity to say goodbye to his colleagues, as he will be returning to his country. A speech was read on behalf of the President of Turkey, Mr. Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, who highlighted the importance of Brazil’s future relations with his country.

After the speeches, fireworks gave beauty to sky on such an important occasion. Then a quartet of musicians began playing live music as people were invited to go to the embassy halls to taste a special dinner with typical Turkish dishes plus a very flavorful Kebab. There were also special drinks and a table of desserts with chocolate and fruits.

At the end of that beautiful celebration, the guests congratulated the ambassador for the National Day of Turkey!
