50TH ANNIVERSARY OF MASSIVE MIGRATIONS TO TURKEY
Events to mark the 50th anniversary of massive migrations from Macedonia to Turkey will take place next month in several cities in Turkey.
Fuad Bicici, the head of Association of Immigrants from Macedonia to the city of Izmit, said a number of associations from Macedonia have been invited to attend the commemoration.
Bicici underscored that Macedonian immigrants in Turkey want their fatherland to develop, therefore, the emigrants unveiled investments in several spheres.
He reiterated that the emigrants have urged the Macedonian government to ensure that they acquire Macedonian citizenship. Bicici also called on local authorities in the municipality of Mavrovo-Rostuse to step up the cooperation with the municipalities in Turkey populated with Macedonia's Disapora.
During the trip to his hometown at Dolna Reka, Bicici donated ambulance vehicle to Health Center in Rostuse.
