Yalova Mayor Vefa Salman, who made statements about the monument to be opened tomorrow, said that they want to announce this dignified behavior to the world as a message with this monument. In his statement, Salman said, “Japanese engineer Riyoichi Kıshi, one of the rare experts trained by the World on the Gulf Crossing Bridge on March 23, 2015, was proven to be his own, although this was later proved. As a result of the metal breaking the rope to the bridge, he ended his life in a Japanese tradition, holding himself responsible for it. This event left a deep mark on me. Turkish Japanese relations have always been positive throughout history. Yalova's relations with Japan are important in two ways. The second sister city of Japan is Tonami, Japan. After the 17 August Marmara Earthquake, Tonami provided important assistance to us. I looked at the issue from this angle. When we look at it from a human point of view, it was an honorable and dignified behavior, although its form was opposite to us. The Japanese have a say in business ethics; 'If someone can do something, I can make a bidet. If nobody can, I should. ' I hope this word will give a message to our country and the world, integrated with this monument. ”
The monument attracts the citizens. In front of the monument, Riyoichi read the article giving information about the section of the citizens of such a monument is a very good behavior is expressed.
The iron pieces on both sides of the monument, in the middle of which is named after Japanese engineer Riyoichi Kıshi, symbolize the broken rope. The monument will be officially opened with a ceremony to be held tomorrow.
