Turkey's education minister said on Wednesday that the Turkish-German university to be opened in Istanbul would be a "state university founded in Turkey".
The first article of a draft law on the opening of a Turkish-German university in Istanbul was approved by the General Assembly of the Turkish parliament on Wednesday.

Replying to questions of deputies on the draft law, Turkish National Education Minister Nimet Cubukcu said Istanbul's Galatasaray University had been founded under the same conditions and clauses with the new Turkish-German institution.

Describing such educational institutions as "state universities established in Turkey" and "contributions to Turkish education system", Cubukcu said, "This is our university and the students to have education at this institution will be the students of our country".

"Opening a Turkish university and secondary schools in Germany is also a necessity. Efforts could be exerted to this end," the minister added.
