Özcan Alas, in the process of a number of tragic-comic experiences, he said. Alas “I talked to someone from Iran last few days ago. They came from Turkey 80 thousand dollars to buy the product. The product they bought is the sewing machine. 80 6 people come together so that one thousand dollars cannot be on one person. And each one came with a thousand dollars on 10-15.
