News Center -TDO- German Embassy Press Undersecretary Dr.Philipp Schmidt hosted a "Welcome Spring" reception in the embassy garden.
The reception was attended by German Ambassador Jürgen Schultz, as well as journalists, politicians and embassy staff.
Undersecretary Schmidt, who made the opening speech, said, “It is a great pleasure to welcome you here today. As the Press Office of the German embassy, many of you will remember that we have a long tradition of bringing members of the press, politicians and embassy staff together for a barbecue.
However, this tradition has been interrupted in recent years. Especially during the pandemic period, everyone had to stay at home. Today we want to revive this tradition.
As embassy employees, it is important for us to know Turkey, that is, the country and its people, and we want to learn how people here are affected. Besides, who better to take the pulse of Turkey than journalists? You are always close to the stories and events that have shaped this country.
You talk to politicians, scientists and people on the street. Without you, it would not have been possible for us to obtain such comprehensive information about the country right now. At the same time, direct exchange of information with you is extremely important to us, so I would like to emphasize once again how pleased I am to bring this reception back to life.” said.
