Turkish as International Communicative Language
One of basic factors which makes a nation a nation is language. It is very important for our party to use Turkish language properly and correctly as we accept it an indispensable element of our national identity. Studies regarding Turkish language will be given particular importance and studies will be carried out to use Turkish as the language of science, art, trade and tele-communication in international level.
Relations with Turkish states and communities will be based on principle of "Unity in language, idea and work". Linguistic and cultural studies about the countries and communities where Turkish is spoken will be given particular importance as primary factor of economic and cultural cooperation and conditions will be created to make Turkish understandable and usable with all dialects.
Protection, Development and Introduction of National Culture
Studies will be carried out especially to protect the new generations against cultural shock or identity crisis, to create quality works to meet the need, and to provide the introduction of national cultural values to people and to make them adopt these values.
National Culture Industry will be established with the aim of introducing and developing Turkish culture and art and making it more alive and popular.
Applications which upset our national values, causing cultural values disturbance, violating national agreements related to our cultural life and creating an indifference and hostility will be prevented.
