Afag Masud: “Today we need more than ever to promote Northern Cyprus literature and culture in Azerbaijan”
The Azerbaijan State Translation Centre (AzSTC) on June 08, Tuesday, received a visit from the head of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC) Representative Office in Baku Növber F. Veçhi and the Education and Culture Attaché Tevfik Ulual.
The parts exchanged views on An Anthology of Turkish Literature, a book of prose and verse published in 2017-18, with focus on samples of Turkish literature produced by AzSTC in Azerbaijani in different years. Plus, they discussed further steps to be taken towards expansion of Azerbaijan-Northern Cyprus literary and cultural ties.
The AzSTC Board Chair Afag Masud said: “Today we need more than ever to promote Northern Cyprus literature and culture in Azerbaijan. Works by Cypriot writers and poets, artists and composers are currently displayed in exhibition halls and leading libraries over the world. One of the main challenges we face today is to promote these pearls of art in Azerbaijan as well.”
In conclusion, Tevfik Ulual donated to the Translation Centre a photo of the Selimiye Mosque designed by him.
