Founder Mustafa Kemal Atatürk – famously said Peace at home, Peace in the world.
“I learned about Mustafa Kemal Atatürk from someone who knows him very well. As I was speaking to the Foreign Affairs Minister of the Soviet Union, Litvinov, he told me that the most valuable and interesting leader in the world does not live in Europe but beyond the Straits in Ankara and that he was the President of the Turkish Republic, Mustafa Kemal Atatürk.” by Franklin D. Roosevelt
