Büyükelçinin Mesajı

My Dear Citizens, Dear Lebanese nationals, Distinguished guests,

Welcome to the website of the Turkish Embassy in Beirut. Ourwebsite aims at providing information on Turkey, Turkish-Lebaneserelations and the services of the Embassy.

Turkey and Lebanon are two brotherly countries, who share the same history, geography and culture.

Relations between Turkey and Lebanon took a new dimension with the removal of visas in 2010. Only last year 160.000 Lebanese visited Turkey.
I believe people to people contacts will increase in the years to come.

I am also glad to note that economic and trade relations between Turkey and Lebanon have been increasing. Bilateral trade volume was 850 million dollars in 2014 which ranks Turkey as the 6th commercial partner of Lebanon.

In executing my functions as the Ambassadorof Turkeyin this beautiful country,my top priority will be tofurther strengthen and deepenourbilateralrelations, to further reinforce strong ties of friendship between our peoples, to explore new areasofcooperation as well as expand and consolidate economic relations and commercial exchanges between our countries, to promote a better understanding of Turkey and its culture and for the Embassy to effectivelyserveall Turkish citizensinLebanon.
