Odesa has French and Italian boulevards, Greek Street, why not create Turkish street in the city? — Turkish Consul to Odesa says
Apr 18 2011, 18:27

ODESA, APRIL 18th, 2011, CONTEXT-PRICHERNOMORIE — Consul General of Turkey to Odesa Mr Murat Tamer says Odesa has French and Italian boulevards, Greek Street, why not create Turkish street in the city, Context-Prichernomorie correspondent reports.

Mr Tamer stated it today, 18 April, at a news conference, commenting on creating the Istanbul Quay and a Turkish-style park in Odesa.

“The idea of creating Istanbul Quay in Odesa was first mention a year and a half ago. Many businesses showed interest in it. This was just before the election. Maybe that’s why the project was criticised. We were regarding it as a friendly project between the two cities. It is the street of friendship. No matter what, the Ottoman Empire is part of Ukrainian history. This is out common history, part of cultural heritage that we received. If Odesa has French and Italian boulevards, Greek Street, why not create Turkish street in the city?”, he said.

“We were also planning to open either Odesa Street or Odesa Park in Istanbul which would become an inalienable part of the city. It will be great if the new Consul General implements this project”, the envoy added.
