President Tunç Soyer“The whole world is in a crisis. Our countries are also in crisis. There is only one thing to do locally; to increase and unite our strength to overcome this crisis together. As we unite, our resistance to crises increases. That's why we've been in Athens, that's why we're trying to set up an expedition between Thessaloniki and Izmir. This is why we make the trips between Mytilene and Izmir. Because if progress is made with the nearest neighbor relations, it is possible to move forward. Neighborhood is our destiny. It is up to us to use its wealth. So we can do more. We want to do more not only in tourism, but also in every field such as culture, art, trade, sports, education and energy. There is a four-point work plan that we started with Athens, and we will move forward with them. If the relationship between peoples from city to city is strengthened, the intervention of governments will be less. Or they are compelled to support," he said. Soyer, who wants the tickets for the Lesbos line to be sold in Lesvos, also requested a gate visa from Despoina Balkiza, the Greek Consul General in Izmir, and said, “We do not plan to make a profit.

Mayor of Lesvos Kytelis Stratis said, “Let's connect with each other by sea as well. We get the opportunity to see both you and your fellow countrymen. We exchange ideas, share our products. Let's develop our municipalities after the two-year pandemic process. The things that connect the people of Mytilene and Izmir are more than what separates them. We feel that we are a people. As a local authority, we want to send a message to governments by building bridges, we want to show how close the two peoples want to be. We believe in the cooperation, friendship and brotherhood of the two peoples. Especially two municipalities. This is the message of the people of Mytilene. We hope that this meeting will be a further step towards the twin cities of the two cities. We are waiting for you in Lesbos”.
