Delivering a speech at the reception, which was attended by members of diplomatic community and Turkish politicians, Emie expressed his pleasure and honor at having represented his country in Ankara. “Thank you for not withholding your friendship. Long live Turkey, long live France, long live the France-Turkey friendship,” Emie said in Turkish.
