An agreement was signed today between Turkey’s Yunus Emre Institute (YEE) and Zagreb police academy to provide Turkish language education to police candidates.

The Turkish culture centre in the Croatian capital Zagreb will provide professional language training programmes to officers in the academy from November.

During the signing ceremony, Director Fuat Korkmaz said the institute aims to strengthen the deep-rooted and historical friendship between Turkey and Croatia.

Police academy President Davorka Martinjak said they have established good relations with Turkey, and cooperation with the cultural centre has great importance.

Besides the Turkish language, the police officers will take courses in fields including immigration, counter-terrorism, and communication from experts of the Turkish Interior Ministry in line with a bilateral agreement.
