In his speech, Yücel drew attention to the increasing interest of international students in Turkey every year and said, “The number of international students in Turkey is increasing significantly. We are trying to stand by these fellow students who have come to Turkey from miles away to receive education. We are trying to establish a brotherhood of Ansar and Muhajir, and build bridges of heart with them. We are trying to provide guidance, counseling, scholarship and dormitory services, and we are trying to draw attention to the responsibility that falls on international students for the establishment of a peaceful world again.”
