The magazine ‘Diplo Atlas’ has closed following the death of its publisher, Kaya Dorsan - a familiar figure among Ankara’s diplomatic community – at the end of March.

Dorsan served as Turkey’s press attaché in Athens, Beirut, Brussels and Paris, and as deputy general director of the Press and Information Department of the Prime Ministry. A proactive and popular public servant, he was instrumental in attracting more foreign journalists to Istanbul - and in particular in ensuring the renovation of Sepetçiler Kasri and its conversion into an international press centre.

Dorsan saw retirement not as a time for life’s comforts but as an opportunity to add to his various adventures. Between 2004 and 2006, he continued to promote his country as publisher of the quality English-language monthly magazine ‘Diplomat’. From 2007 to 2013, “Kaya Bey” further enriched the life of the capital as publisher of ‘Diplomat Atlas’ and later ‘DiploAtlas’. Special editions of these Turkish-language magazines featured Algeria, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cuba, Egypt, Hungary, Israel, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Montenegro, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Slovenia, South Sudan, Switzerland and Ukraine.

Dorsan’s unfailing modesty, courteousness, even-temperedness and sense of humor were well matched by an extensive knowledge of Turkish and international history and culture. As one might expect from an accomplished philatelist, he was also a keen observer and a meticulous editor. Throughout his short illness, he never gave up hope of returning to Ankara and publishing fresh editions. ‘Diplo Atlas’ would have been unthinkable without him. Dorsan is survived by his wife and two daughters. All of the publications referred to can still be found at www.diplomat.com.tr.

Ankara Scene is deeply saddened with the news of the sad demise of Kaya Dorsan and  extends its deepest condolences to his family and friends.
