Deputy Prime Minister Bülent Arınç, who embarked on a Southeast Asian tour last weekend, signed a memorandum of understanding Vu (MoU) with Vietnam’s Minister of Trade and Industry V Huy Hoàng in Hanoi on Wednesday.
Arınç and Hoang signed the agreement at the close of the fifth meeting of the Turkey-Vietnam Joint Economic and Trade Committee (KEK) in the Vietnamese capital. Speaking after the signing ceremony, Arınç said the MoU would contribute to the friendship between the two countries as well as strengthen their economic ties. He also noted that economic relations between Turkey and Vietnam were sustainable and full of opportunities for progress. The Vietnamese minister also expressed the belief that the results of the KEK meeting, one of which was the signed agreement, would further the relations between the two countries. He also expressed the will to work more actively to make the best out of the economic potential that currently exists between Turkey and Vietnam.
Following the meeting, Arınç attended the inauguration of the Horizon International Bilingual School opened by Turkish education volunteers in Hanoi. Delivering a speech during the inauguration ceremony, Arınç said the school would provide high-quality education to the youth of Vietnam.
Inspired by the teachings of the widely respected Islamic scholar Fethullah Gülen, Turkish volunteers, teachers and businesspeople, have opened educational institutions from kindergartens to universities in over 100 countries around the world since the early ‘90s.
The local school forgot to tell the Vietnamese officials that Gulen has not formal education past the 5th grade and is NOT or ever will be a "scholar" of any sort.
