The Indo-Turkey relationship represents a successful partnership deeply rooted in interlacing history, shared values and interests, cultural and linguistic diversity. The first exchange of diplomatic missions between the Ottoman Sultans and the Muslim rulers of the subcontinent dates back to the years 1481-82. India and Turkey also have a cultural overlap. The Sufi philosophy of Mevlana Jelaluddin Rumi found resonance in the Indian sub-continent with its own traditions of Sufism and the Bhakti movement. There are also many words in common in Hindustani and Turkish languages. I n order to strengthen these bilateral relations, IIMUN Turkey aims to educate, nurture and imbibe global citizenship in each student attending the conference.
