TACAF condemns the attempted military coup in Turkey

Turkish American Cultural Association Of Florida (TACAF) condemns the attempted military coup in Turkey, which claimed the lives of 161 and wounded more than 1,400.

The failed attempt to overthrow the current government in Turkey is a blatant disregard for the democratic process and a mere intervention against democracy, international law, and human rights.

TACAF stands for democracy based on international principles, norms and standards - the tenets upon which the Turkish nation was founded.

TACAF offers its condolences to those families who have lost loved ones and wishes for a quick and full recovery to those individuals who were injured during these tragic events.

May 19, Commemoration of Atatürk, Youth and Sports Day

May 19th marks a significant date in the history of the Turkish Republic.
Ninety-seven years ago, Army Commander and Founding Father Mustafa Kemal Atatürk arrived in the port city of Samsun on the Black Sea coast of Turkey,
launching the War of Independence against powers that had invaded Turkey at the end of World War I, repelling all foreign militia from Turkish soil.
Thus began the transformation of Turkey into a progressive, secular and modern democracy. From that day forward, Turks became united,
for the first time recognizing and celebrating their nationhood. As a reminder that the future of the Republic is entrusted in the youth, this day has so been named, "Youth and Sports Day."

Turkish American Cultural Association of Florida remembers Atatürk's message to the Turkish Youth, which he sent at the end of his famous, 36 hours long speech, "Nutuk".

"I'd like to direct my last words specifically to the youngsters of our homeland. Turkish Youth! You add on to and carry on our confidence.
With the discipline and virtue you gain, you'll be the most valuable reflection of humanity, love of homeland, and freedom of opinion. You, arising new generation! The future is yours.
We formed the republic; you'll make it live on..."
M. Kemal Atatürk

Turkish American Cultural Association of Florida extends its best wishes to Turks and Turkish Americans, both at home and abroad,
on this day of tribute to Atatürk and to the energy and optimism of youth everywhere.

Happy Youth and Sports Day!

Armenian troops launch offensive against US ally Azerbaijan

On April 1 units of the Armenian army deployed to occupied Nagorno Karabakh region of Azerbaijan launched an offensive against Azerbaijan. According to Associated Press, the Armenian military fired mortars and large-caliber artillery shells at Azerbaijani-populated villages on the line of contact between Armenian and Azeri forces.

The attack on Azerbaijani villages comes at a time when President Obama convened leaders of 54 states, including Azerbaijani and Armenian presidents, in Washington to discuss the nuclear security threats. On the sidelines of his visit, Azerbaijani President met with President Obama, VP Joe Biden and Secretary of State John Kerry. Secretary Kerry appreciated Azerbaijan's strategic role in its contributions to the energy security of Europe and US-Azerbaijan joined counter-terrorism efforts.

Secretary Kerry affirmed U.S. support for Azerbaijan's territorial integrity, a core principle of international law, violated by Armenia since 1994. Obviously, Russia is angered by US-Azerbaijani strategic alliance and Washington's support to Azerbaijan's sovereignty. Hence the Armenia's large scale offensive. The attack against Azerbaijan follows the explicitly-affirmed doctrine of Armenian president Serzh Sargsyan's that Armenia will "coordinate its foreign policy with Russia."

UN Security Council adopted four resolutions 822, 853, 874, 884 calling for immediate withdrawal of Armenian forces, allowing the return of Azerbaijani refugees. Armenia is yet to comply. Please call on Armenia to implement UN SC resolutions and comply with norms of international law.
