Highlighting importance of the historic tomb, Erdogan said his visit was not only important in terms of the relations between the two countries but also to show the deep-rooted Turkish-Hungarian friendship with the inauguration of the symbolic tomb.

The Turkish president recalled the Gul Baba tomb is just one of many examples of common historical and cultural heritage in Hungary which represents the friendship, solidarity and common history of the two countries.

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, for his part, thanked the Turkish president for his interest in the restoration of the tomb and said Turkey and Hungary jointly restore the tomb.
