In his messages, Gül said Çanakkale was a city synonymous with the Battle of Gallipoli and fallen soldiers.
“We visited the war cemetery and paid respect to our martyrs,” Gül wrote of his two-day trip to the city, adding that he was happy to see people from all around the country visiting the cemetery.
Another important stop of Gül’s trip was Gökçeada, Turkey’s largest island and the country’s westernmost point. “We went to the island yesterday [April 28],” the president wrote. “It is important to preserve the beauty of the island while it develops, I reminded that to everybody.”
Gül and his wife Hayrünnisa Gül also visited Zeytinlik village on the island, where Greek-Turkish citizens reside. The president also shared a photo of Efi Hanım, who served the Gül couple “dibek coffee,” which gets its name from the special method in which the coffee beans are ground
