April 23, 1920 is the date when the Turkish Grand National Assembly, which represents the will of the Turkish nation, was established and the Turkish people declared their sovereignty. While Atatürk decided to celebrate '23 April' as the 'National Sovereignty Day' on April 23, 1924, he gifted this holiday to children on April 23, 1929. In this respect, April 23 was celebrated for the first time in 1929 as "23 April National Sovereignty and Children's Day".
Our President, Pevrul Kavlak, issued a congratulatory message on behalf of the Board of Directors of the Turk Metal on the occasion of the 102nd anniversary of the 23 April National Sovereignty and Children's Day. While celebrating the 23 April National Sovereignty and Children's Day in his message, he made the following statements: “This birthday of our Turkish Grand National Assembly, which was established on April 23, 1920, which is the symbol of our national sovereignty, was gifted to all children of the world by the Great Leader Mustafa Kemal Atatürk. Happy 23 April National Soverinty and Children’s Day!
