Dear Sir/Madam,

I would like to invite you to the commemoration ceremony for public servants and diplomats in foreign service who were slain while serving their countries. The ceremony will also honour all slain Turkish diplomats, including Colonel Atilla ALTIKAT, Military Attaché of the Embassy of the Republic of Turkey who was shot dead in Ottawa by terrorists while he was on his way to work on August 27th, 1982. Colonel ALTIKAT was the first and only fatality of a foreign diplomat on Canadian soil, and the perpetrators of the crime are still at large.

The ceremony, which will mark the first anniversary of the inauguration of the Fallen Diplomats Memorial which was inaugurated by His Excellency Mr. Ahmet DAVUTOĞLU, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Turkey and the Honourable John BAIRD, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Canada, will be held at the Monument of Fallen Diplomats (corner of Sir John A. Macdonald Parkway and Island Park Drive) on Sunday, September 22nd, 2013 from 14:00-16:00 hours.

We would appreciate the participation of our friends and community, members of the Diplomatic Corps, Parliamentarians, media and general public to honour the memories of fallen diplomats.

Yours sincerely,

Dr. Tuncay BABALI
