The General Assembly in Erzurum, Turkey is a safe country, we stated that a safe city. See, we were told that snow is a burden because we have been a winter city since the past. Hopefully, we will strive to show that snow is not a bother, not a burden, but a blessing. Our whole goal is to 'make Erzurum Davos in sports'. I hope we will have other studies for this work from now on. Here, we mainly attach great importance to winter sports. While we attach importance to winter sports, we do not ignore other sports branches. We try to organize various organizations related to other sports branches here.

This year, we will do our best to keep our salons empty in skiing and other sports. We have a summer season ahead of us.

We will state that these claims are untrue. We will endeavor to announce to the public that we do not have such a problem with the press conferences we will hold there. We are going to Warsaw for such a mission. I hope it will be beneficial for our city ”.
TAŞKESENLİOĞLU: "BE GOOD TO EYOWF 2017 ERZURUM"
AK Party Erzurum Deputy Zehra Taşkesenlioğlu noted that Erzurum will be illuminated with the light of the Olympic torch. Deputy Taşkesenlioğlu said: “To illuminate today's and the next days with the light we receive from the Olympic torch, and to make Erzurum a stronger brand for both Turkey and the world, just as it was during the Seljuk period, just as it was during the Ottoman period. I would like to start my words with the hope that it will be a city. First of all, we organized the European Youth Winter Olympics in Erzurum and our country. kazanI would like to thank our Mayor, Mehmet Sekmen, and Erzurum Governor, Dilek Okuyucu, the President of the Turkish Ice Skating Federation, and everyone who contributed. We are holding one more of the 3 important Olympics, which the whole world is watching with interest, in Erzurum, in the city where the torch of our liberation was first lit. I believe that the Olympic torch we lit here will pave the way for the 2020 International Olympics to be hosted by Turkey.” Stating that Erzurum has become a brand city with Universiade 2011, Taşkesenlioğlu said, “With 2011, Erzurum has become a brand city. For investments of millions of dollars, our government reached out to everything without saying 'no' to anything. We had only one problem; It meant 'the development of a province, the development of the region'. The development of a region was an important move in the development of the country. Therefore, EYOWF 2017 will lead the development of Turkey, Erzurum and the region. In this sense, as the Government, I and my other deputies will be pioneers in this sense, so that all investment channels are flowed to Erzurum again. The fact that 17 thousand young people were among us in different languages and dialects on the streets of Erzurum will not only affect our cultural diversity, but will also ensure that love and peace are announced to the whole world from Erzurum. Sports, just like literature, just like music, will allow the spread of love from one language to another, from heart to heart.”
"SPORTS IS A GREAT OPPORTUNITY IN PROMOTION AND TOURISM"
Erzurum Metropolitan Municipality Secretary General Ali Rıza Kiremitci stated that sports is an opportunity in promotion and tourism. General Secretary Kiremitci said, “We strive to make every organization an opportunity for Erzurum. We want to make some contributions to this city by taking advantage of such organizations. On the one hand, while our teams about the organization are working, raising competitors there, on the other hand, we are constantly working on the field, taking advantage of this in urban transformation, environmental regulations and some investments, at the point of abusing our city. I am already excited about this, my President is more than I am. This year, we will dress at least 5-6 thousand young people in the back part of our Cafe 25 facility where we are located, take them to Palandöken and ski. We will give each student about 20 hours of skiing lessons and make them available for skiing. We will also certify this at the same time. At least 2017 thousand young skiers will have trained in 10. Everything is for this beautiful city, ”he said. Fuat Taşkesenligil, Provincial Director of Youth Services and Sports, gave the following comments: “All our facilities are ready for EYOWF 2017, but we continue to work here due to the collapse in the Jump Towers. It was held in the last tender in Jump Towers. In the summer, the process for the superstructure of the Jump Towers will be completed. Our curling hall is under maintenance… We will complete it in a short period of one month and prepare it for the World Junior Curling Championship. There is no problem in our other facilities. Of course, we started the maintenance of our facilities as we will host a large organization like EYOWF. We will be fully prepared for this process in the summer. According to the information I got from YURTKUR, there is no problem in the accommodation part. Currently, approximately 12 thousand athletes can stay in our city. This number will increase to 2017 thousand by EYOWF 17. We frequently organize sports events in Erzurum. EYOWF is also an organization we can tackle. In this sense, we have very experienced staff in Erzurum. I would like to state that we can handle this organization very easily. "
READER: "THE PRESIDENT SEKMEN MADE A GREAT DIPLOMACY FOR EYOWF"
Ice Skating Federation Dr. Dilek Okuyucu talked about EYOWF 2017 in his speech. Dr. The reader noted: “EYOWF; It is a journey that started in 2012. Bosnia and Herzegovina was the host city of Sarai Bosnia, which will host the 2017 European Youth Winter Olympics. Due to the negative consequences they could have said they will seek help from these organizations and the Republic of Turkey at this point. We submitted this to our higher authorities. During the visit of our Prime Minister to Sarajevo, this issue was discussed at the Prime Ministerial level and our State declared that it could organize 2017. Then, other legal processes were completed and we took over the hosting of 2017 at the organization held in Prague last weekend. Our team has successfully completed this. We declared that we will host EYOWF 2017. In this sense, the whole procedure is completed. Mr.Mehmet Sekmen, our esteemed Metropolitan Mayor, conducted great diplomacy. Turkey's National Olympic Committee and Sports Ministry was there with all our strength. We have to speed up the next process. We have a very short time like 14 months. Erzurum has international organization experience. The richness of facilities and the fact that our state is with us are the factors that make us strong. I hope we will receive medals in this organization and we will say from Erzurum to the whole world, "We are also very good in terms of sports."
