Turkish Embassy in Tallinn

Ambassador's Message

Dear guests,

The foundations of deep-rooted friendship bonds between modern Turkey and Estonia have been laid by the founder of the Republic of Turkey, Mustafa Kemal Atatürk and first President of the Republic of Estonia, Konstantin Pats.

As two young Republics, Turkey and Estonia have commenced their political relations with the agreement of Friendship and Cooperation signed on 1 December 1924. Turkey has opened one of her first Embassies abroad in Tallinn on 4 September 1935.

The occupation of Estonia by Soviet Union has never been recognized by Turkey and when Estonia has regained her independence on 20 August 1991 our Embassy has been reopened in Tallin on 1 November 2001.

I took up my duties as the Ambassador of the Republic of Turkey as of 15 September 2015.

During my tenure, together with my colleagues, I am committed to exerting every effort to further enhance the existing ties of friendship and cooperation between Turkey and Estonia.

I am happy to emphasize that contacts between peoples of Turkey and Estonia are gradually developing. At present, Turkey is the top foreign destination for Estonian tourists. On the other hand, the number of Turkish students who receive education at universities in Estonia are growing every year. These human contacts will constitute strong bases to our endeavors in developing bilateral relations between the two countries.

We attach utmost importance to receive your continued support to our activities. We pursue an open door policy in our Embassy and look forward to learning your ideas and proposals.

Taking this opportunity, on behalf of my colleagues at the Turkish Embassy and myself, I extend our best wishes and regards to the visitors of our website.
