The GNAT’s Speaker Şentop’s message is as follows:
Dear friend Viktoras Pranckietis,
On the occasion of the centenary of the foundation of Seimas, the Lithuanian Parliament, on my behalf, on behalf of the Grand National Assembly of Turkey and of our nation, I convey my congratulations and sincere regards to the esteemed members of your Parliament and to the friendly people of Lithuania.
In this year, when the assemblies of both friendly countries have their 100th anniversary, I believe that our hearts are always together, even though we cannot hold our celebrations together and as enthusiastic as we wish due to the pandemic process we are facing.
On this occasion, I would like to express my condolences to the relatives of those who lost their lives due to the pandemic, and I wish urgent healing to the patients. I would like to express that as Turkey, we are ready for moral and material support for our Lithuanian friends.
We know that Seimas played the most important role in the construction of Lithuania both after its establishment 100 years ago and the regain of the independence. With this important historical experience, I believe that you will make a great contribution to strengthening international peace, democracy, human rights and the rule of law.
All my Lithuanian friends, whose wills come into existence in Seimas! Sveykinu Yus.”
