In turn, the chairman of the Magyar-Turan Foundation, A. Biro, spoke about the significance of the Elteris Qutlug-Qaghan complex, discovered by the Nomgon expedition, noting that this is a significant event in Turkology. Hungarian scientists highly appreciated the merits of the Turkic Academy, emphasizing that the discovery made is a result of many years of scientific work. In particular, a deeper study of the ancient Turkic, Sogdian and Brahmi inscriptions on the stones found in the complex will open up new pages of Turkic history.

To recall, this year, as a result of a scientific archaeological expedition in the Arkhangay aimag of Mongolia, on the Nomgon plain, carried out jointly by the Turkic Academy and the Institute of Archaeology of the Academy of Sciences of Mongolia, a complex and an inscription dedicated to Elteris Qutlug-Qaghan were found.
