A message to the people of Türkiye and Syria
The members of the University of Tokyo community extend our deepest sympathy to everyone affected by the terrible disaster in Türkiye and Syria. Our university has had many important research and educational collaborations with scholars and students in the region over the years, including in the areas of seismology and disaster management. As we ourselves experienced the destruction caused by the Great East Japan Earthquake in 2011, we are truly heartbroken to see the profound pain and sorrow of the victims and their families in Türkiye and Syria. We pay our deepest respects to the people of the region for their courage and resilience as well as to those providing emergency assistance.
