Education Palace

Speeches delivered on the opening ceremony of NEU Education Palace (25 September 2004).

"No matter how much we appreciate Suat Günsel, that would not be sufficient, I believe. I sincerely congratulate him and his team. What we should do and claim, as committed by Suat Günsel, is saying ‘This is my country, my state, my university, my flag, my people, I do exist with my very Turkey, I want peace and settlement, but I never want them at the cost of giving up from state, my sovereignity, or surrendering my universities to Greek control. We want to stand proudly`.
Our struggle is to protect our very homeland , our soverignty and freedom. I salute and offer my love to those who say ‘We do exist now, we shall exist in future, we shall not haul down our flags, we shall own this land’. Mr Suat is a leading figure amongst those dedicated people, all investigators are also dedicated, our people who trust in our state are dedicated. I sincerely congratulate Mr Suat and his team. I wish them much further achievements.
TRNC- 1st President

“I also sincerely congratulate the creators of such enchanting achievements. Our homeland is turned to be a country of universities. These universities have rich infrastructures. Our youth must benefit from richness of such opportunities and get prepared to life with highest qualifications.

I myself wish, as committed by Mr. Suat, all Turkish Cypriots struggle hard for this land and get deeper roots in this land. This mission lays for all of us.’
TRNC - Former President of the Assembly

‘It is impossible not to praise Mr. Suat Günsel, the President, for creating such a great achievement, it is impossible not to appreciate his team. I sincerely congratulate Mr. Suat and his team. Because, they have endowed TRNC with a monument which cost 6 million dollars and put another brick on the substructure of TRNC. The Education Palace has turned to be a symbol not only for NEU, but also for TRNC. NEU is extremely important as it has proved us that we can achieve a lot providing that we move in cooperation and collaboration.’
