Davutoğlu enjoys visit to Turkish school in Riyadh

4 January 2010, Monday /TODAY’S ZAMAN
Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu visited the International Turkish School in Riyadh on Sunday, the last day of his official visit to Saudi Arabia.

Davutoğlu, accompanied by his wife, Sare, spent almost three hours at the school. Delivering a brief speech upon his arrival at the school, Davutoğlu asked students what they wanted. He particularly appreciated the answer of a student who replied, “Our elderly ones should be honest.” After watching a folkdance performance by the children, Davutoğlu toured the classrooms in the school, where some of the children asked him for help in finding better educational conditions.

As he talked with the children in a kindergarten classroom, Davutoğlu said: “Say hello to your mothers and fathers. What will you say to your mothers and fathers? Whose greetings?” In response, the children said, “We will say hello from Uncle Ahmet.” Before leaving the school, Ahmet and Sare Davutoğlu distributed gifts to the kindergarten students.
