Two tourism ministers from the Black Sea coast, Valeri Tsybuh from Ukraine and Alexander Taryanik from the Crimea Autonomous Republic, who came to Turkey on the occasion of the second Black Sea Yacht Festival at Atakoy Marina in Istanbul, visited Turkey's tourism minister, Ibrahim Gurdal, in his office on Monday, the Anatolia news agency reported.

Taryanik, stating that they had come to Turkey on the invitation of the Atakoy Marina administration for the festival, said that they were warmly welcomed by their Turkish hosts. The Crimean minister pointed out that the Black Sea was an important tie between Crimea and Turkey and that tourism was a good opportunity for both of the nations to get to know each other better.

Gurdal, on the other hand, stated that he was glad to host the two ministers in Turkey, and that in addition to presenting their historical values to each other, tourism was eradicating borders between countries and strengthening friendship among people.

"The Black Sea is not a border, it is a connection between the two countries," said Gurdal, indicating that last year 360,000 Ukrainians visited Turkey and 150 Turkish businessmen were running businesses in Ukraine.

After his speech, Tourism Minister Gurdal gave two silver plates carved with Turkish motifs to the tourism ministers of Ukraine and Crimea.
