site.btaBulgarian Ambassador: "A Second Home of Bulgaria at the Heart of Turkish Capital"
Bulgarian Ambassador to Turkiye Angel Cholakov called the new BTA press club in Ankara "the second home of Bulgaria at the heart of the Turkish capital". In his remarks at the opening of the BTA Ankara press club on Thursday, he mentioned the facility's symbolic location on Ataturk Boulevard and the symbolism of the opening date: the same day when Ataturk left Bulgaria where he was a military attache.
"Today is the date of birth of the national press club but how it will grow up and develop, is up to us all: our ideas, proposals, ambitions," the Ambassador added.
He said that his wish and that of BTA Director General is to see the press club becoming a place for meetings and debate, "a launch vehicle to promote Bulgaria as a destination for tourism, investment and culture - but most of all a place for contacts and friendships".
Time will show whether along with being a press club it will also be a boutique art gallery or a cultural centre, the Ambassador added. Whatever happens, he is sure that the press club will be much more than its name says.
