Azerbaijan, Baku, Sept. 28 /Trend, T.Hajiyev/

Azerbaijani MP Ganira Pashayeva has written a book about the leader of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC) Rauf Denktash.

The book titled "Rauf Denktash: life, struggle, dreams, hope .... " was presented on Sept. 28.

The book tells about childhood and youth of one of the great public-political leaders of the Turkic world, the leader of the Turks of Northern Cyprus, the first President of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC), Rauf Denktash, his fight begun in the mid-twentieth century for the rights of Turks living in island, and his political and diplomatic activities. The book contains thoughts on the motion of reconciliation, memories, thoughts on the past of TRNC, its present day and future, as well as interesting information connected with the assessment of the Turkic world.

During her professional journalistic activities, Pashayeva has many times visited the island of Cyprus. Through these trips, she has met with Rauf Denktash several times, interviewed him, preparing programs and telecasts about him. The texts of interviews and telecasts (including the still undisclosed part of the interview), as well as books presented by Denktash to Pashayeva have been used in preparation of this book.

The chief advisor of the book is the head of the TRNC representation in Baku Zaki Gazioglu and editor - head of the World Union of Young Turk Writers Akbar Goshaly.

Addressing the event, Pashayeva said that the thoughts of Heydar Aliyev and Mustafa Kemal Ataturk on the unity of the Turkic world always live in our hearts.

"Our National Leader Heydar Aliyev has always worked to develop ties between the Turkic countries, provide mutual support, mutual knowledge and well-coordinated work of the Turkic states within the organizations. Continuing this policy, President Ilham Aliyev also pays special attention to these issues," she added.

According to Pashayeva, Azerbaijan's policy is aimed at an greater convergence of Azerbaijan and Turkey, a greater understanding of each other.

"In all possible ways, we should support this. To be closer, we should know well each other. Better learning, we must support each other. Therefore, I considered it my duty to write a book about the great personality of the Turkic world Rauf Denktash," she added.

In his turn, Zaki Gazioglu said that this book is an important step towards further rapprochement between our nations.  

According to the Turkish ambassador to Azerbaijan Hulusi Kilic, in today's world, double standards are applied both with regards to both Nagorno-Karabakh conflict and the Cyprus issue.

"Some Western countries, who constantly speak about the human rights, quietly turn a blind eye on human rights violations in Cyprus and Karabakh issue. Turkey will always support the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus and Azerbaijan," said the ambassador.

In his speech, Rauf Denktash's son Serdar Denktash thanked Pashayeva for her initiative.

"This book tells the Azerbaijani readers about fair fight of the Turks of Cyprus. This book assumes great importance from the point of view of familiarizing the Azerbaijani readers with our history," said Serdar Denktash.

Then, participants told about the importance of this book. According to them, such projects should be approved in terms of strengthening the Azerbaijani-Turkish brotherhood.

The book titled "Rauf Denktash: life, struggle, dreams, hope .... " was prepared under Ganira Pashayeva's project "Get familiarized and familiarize with the Turkic world". The aim of this project is to help familiarize the Azerbaijani youth with different regions, history and today, the leaders of the Turkic world. At the same time, the goal is to familiarize Turkic and whole world with the great personalities of Azerbaijan and their activities. Within the project, in the world media and popular magazines were published articles in the Azerbaijani, Turkish, Russian and English about leaders such as Mustafa Kemal Ataturk and Heydar Aliyev, Azerbaijan's world known figures Nasreddin Tusi, Shahryar, Lotfi Zadeh, Tahir Salahov and as the First Lady of Azerbaijan, President of the Heydar Aliyev Foundation, Goodwill Ambassador of UNESCO and ISESCO, MP Mehriban Aliyeva, whose activities have been perceived around the world with approval.
