Special attention will be paid to sacred places and personalities of the Turkic world


Speaking at the 6th Summit of the Turkic Council President Nursultan Nazarbayev proposed to implement projects on "Sacred Places of the Turkic World" and "100 Outstanding People of the Turkic World".

At the summit, Nursultan Nazarbayev proposed to consider the possibility of implementing the project on the Turkic world's sacred places and the "100 people of the Turkic world." The President of Kazakhstan said: " There are great traces of our ancient ancestors from the Altai to Anatolia, from Baikal to the Balkans. I propose to take care of sacred places of the Turkic world in order to preserve and show them to next generations. I am sure that the project will contribute to the promotion of the culture and history of the Turkic world." Moreover, Nursultan Nazarbayev said, "At present, Kazakhstan is successfully implementing the "Revival of Identity" program. According to my assignment, a new Kazakh alphabet based on the Latin script has been developed. Kazakhstan’s transition to the Latin script brings together the writing culture of Turkic-speaking countries. In addition, within the framework of the "Revival of Identity" program, the project on "100 new names" of Kazakhstan is being implemented. There are such great people as Al-Farabi, Yassawi, Abay, Yunus Emre, Nizami, Fuzuli, Ulugbek, Ch.Aitmatov. In this regard, I propose to consider the possibility of developing within the Turkic Council a special project on "100 people of Turkic world".

The President of Kazakhstan also noted that the Turkestan region was established and the Turkic world returned its historical name of a region, and that it would be great if Turkic states provide any assistance to the region.
