Dear Visitor,

  I wish to warmly welcome you to the webpage of the Permanent Mission of Turkey to the United Nations. I hope that your visit to our website will help you learn more about Turkey's foreign policy as well as Turkey’s activities and policies related to various aspects of the UN agenda.

As a founding member of the United Nations, Turkey assumes important roles with respect to the issues of global interest such as global peace and security, fight against terrorism, human rights, sustainable development, poverty alleviation, intercultural and interfaith dialogue and mediation. As a result of our role, Turkey became a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council in 2009-2010, first time after our membership 48 years ago in 1961. Turkey has also announced its candidature for a non-permanent seat in the Council for 2015-2016.

Attaching great importance to international cooperation, Turkey acts in cooperation and consultation with the institutions, organizations, non-governmental organizations, Member States and all other stakeholders working within the UN framework.

  Your feedback about Turkey`s activities at the United Nations is very important to us. Please do not hesitate to contact our Mission ( tr-delegation.newyork@mfa.gov.tr ) for your questions, suggestions or comments.


    Sincerely Yours,

    Yasar Halit Çevik
