Prof. Mustafa Şentop, Speaker of the GNAT, posted a message on his social media account, Mr. Şentop stated the followings:
“Those who were subject to the echange 95 years ago had to leave behind their lands which they cultivated for hundreds of years, houses, holy places they worshiped and the graves of their beloved ones. They waited at the ports and train stations for weeks and months.
As every year, the exchange organizations left a wreath to the sea in memory of those who lost their lives on the roads of war and migration this year. I wish God's mercy on those who died on the way of exchange. "
