BUDAPEST (AA) - Turkey's cultural diplomacy in Hungary will be more effective with Yunus Emre Institute, said Turkish Minister of Culture and Tourism Omer Celik Wednesday speaking to the journalists at Budapest Ferenc Liszt International Airport.  

Celik emphasized the importance of Yunus Emre Institute, a Turkish soft power initiative, which he said was accepted as the backbone of the country's cultural and public diplomacy.

Pointing out that a quite nice building was constructed in a historical place in capital Budapest for the Yunus Emre Turkish Culture Center which will be opened on Thursday, Celik said cultural diplomacy in the region would become more concrete with the institute's going into action. 

Turkish minister will also meet with Hungarian Minister of Human Resources Zoltan Balog.  

There are over 20 Yunus Emre Turkish cultural centres around the world serving to a great number of foreigners and carrying out many projects in fields of art and culture as well as Turkish education.
