Participating in the 'Smart Cities Summit ü held at Swiss Hotel under the sponsorship of SAMPAŞ, Minister for EU Affairs and Chief Negotiator Egemen Bağış said that Istanbul is a civilization and city of tolerance. Donations, in the cities of non-tolerance, referring to the events, Benghazi condemned the attack, he said.
Stating that Istanbul is a smart city with its tolerance for centuries, Egemen Bagis, Minister for EU Affairs and Chief Negotiator said, üz When we look at it from a more general perspective, it is one of the smartest cities in the world. Because people in different parts of the world for centuries while fighting over the values of all beliefs in Istanbul, all values lived together in peace. There are few cities in the world where mosques, churches and basins can provide peace for humanity. One of these is Istanbul. Istanbul does not have a problem that cannot be solved. Thank you very much for our most important wealth in Istanbul. Our ability to make mutual empathy. There is a b power that touches on the problems of Istanbul. There is a sense of local government, Bir he said.
Stating that the Smart Cities Summit is of great importance for the purpose of the Minister Egemen Bagis, ıs There is a tremendous energy in Istanbul. There is a very serious interest from east to west from Istanbul. This is an indication that the mind of Istanbul is being discovered by others. We used to feel the need to tell abroad when it was called Istanbul. But now Istanbul has a brand value. I am very pleased to talk about Istanbul in the European Union negotiation process. I try to explain to Europeans at every opportunity how weak a European Union would be without Istanbul, how poor it would be and how a European Union without Istanbul would actually be missing for the European Union and not for Istanbul. There is no other big city that has been the capital of 3 empire in the world. There are many cities in the world that go through the river, but there is no other city that passes through the sea. Even though we are not a member of the European Union, Europe is not only a cultural capital but also a city that has been chosen as a sports capital in two years. This fact reveals that Istanbul's biggest weapon in the EU process of Turkey's biggest trump card, "he said.
Minister Bağış continued his words as follows: Lar Different generations are still really impressed when they see Istanbul. On the one hand, Istanbul's seven hills give a very different message to Istanbul. On the other hand, tunnels passing through the seven hills are beginning to solve the transportation problem. We are all affected when we look at the beautiful silhouette of Istanbul. We also reveal works that can give the sense of humanity the same quality to the next generations and the population exceeding 15 million. The concept of smart cities is a new concept in the world, but it has always existed in this land for its purpose. Because being smart requires that the channels of communication that can use the mind are open. Dialogue must be open. Fortunately, we are aware that in this big city we represent a great wealth with all our differences. Here in the world that we are not aware of the difficulties seen in the city. We are also aware of how they see Istanbul as a source of inspiration for that culture of living together in Istanbul. Onların
