Büyükelçinin Mesajı

Dear Guests of our Embassy’s website,

Türkiye recognized Bangladesh on 22 February 1974 shortly after its independence and the Turkish Embassy in Dhaka was opened in 1976 while the Embassy of Bangladesh in Ankara was inaugurated in 1981.

The Embassy is working towards furthering the close relations between the two countries, which are based on the historical bonds between the peoples of Türkiye and Bangladesh. Our primary goal is to strengthen our political, economic and cultural relations.

Relations between Turkish and Bengali nations have strong historical and cultural roots dating back before the foundation of the People’s Republic of Bangladesh. The Muslims of South Asia including the Bengalis, had supported the Turkish War of Independence. The respect and admiration for Atatürk is reflected in the epic poem “Kamal Pasha”, written by Kazi Nazrul Islam, National Poet of Bangladesh, in 1921. This poem has been on the curriculum in Bangladesh schools. Besides, one major avenue in Dhaka and another one in Chattogram have been named as “Kemal Atatürk Avenue”. In the same vein, the support of the Bengali people during the Turkish War of Independence is still remembered with gratitude by the Turkish people.

Turkish Airlines with its daily direct flights between Istanbul and Dhaka provides the opportunity to advance the economic, cultural and touristic exchanges with a view to further promoting the trade volume that is around 1,2 billion USD.

You can follow the activities of our Embassy through this website you are visiting, as well as ourFacebookandTwitteraccounts. Please feel free to contact us via our e-mail address embassy.dhaka@mfa.gov.tr as well.

With my best wishes to all of you.

Ramis Şen
