THE CONCEPT OF “ZERO PROBLEMS” WAS NOT EFFECTIVE IN THE LAST 4 YEARS(29.06.2016)

The concept of “zero problems” was not effective in the last 4 years

Letter of the Turkish President, the normalization of relations between Turkey and Israel, and, on the contrary, a complication of relations between Turkey and Germany is under the constant scrutiny of international and Turkish media and expert community. In this regard, we offer you an interview with a Turkish political scientist and head of “Strategic Outlook” magazine Yusuf Cinar.As it is known, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan recently sent a letter to his Russian counterpart. Some experts believe that, in this way Erdogan is trying to normalize bilateral relations. Do you think that Erdogan will go for more? And what should be expected from bilateral re...


TURKEY-GERMANY RELATIONS AND THE ACCEPTANCE OF THE SO-CALLED ARMENIAN GENOCIDE LAW DRAFT(16.06.2016)

Turkey-Germany relations and the Acceptance of the So-called Armenian Genocide Law Draft

1. A couple days ago the German Federal Parliament accepted the draft recognizing the Armenian allegations regarding the events of 1915. How will this decision of the German parliament affect Turkey-Germany relations? What balances will shift, how will the relations Germany maintains with the Republic of Turkey will be damaged by the decision? Germany has received migrants from Turkey ever since the 1960s. A portion of these workers that went to Germany in the 1960s were from rural areas of Anatolia. Yet, there have also been political migrations as a result of the military coups. Political convicts wanted by Turkey migrated to Germany during the 70s and 80s. It is not possible ...


THE EVENTS OF 1915 IN THE SERVICE OF MERKEL(8.06.2016)

The Events of 1915 in the Service of Merkel

This issue, in one form or another, has been around for a long time in Germany. It must be understood that the interpretation of the 1915 events in the Ottoman Empire now turned into an instrument of political bargaining and blackmail. I am deeply convinced that many members of parliament, who voted "for", have very vague understanding of what happened in 1915 and in subsequent years in the Ottoman Empire and what was Germany's role in these processes. It can be interpreted as a "punishment" of Erdogan.  Prior to that, a powerful propaganda campaign, aimed personally against Erdogan and accompanying by personal insults addressed to Turkish President, took...


COMPARISON OF SO-CALLED "ARMENIAN GENOCIDE" WITH HOLOCAUST(24.04.2016)

Comparison of So-Called

A number of writers and public figures, referring to the topic of "Armenian genocide", also often referred to the Holocaust, by comparing the most tragic events of 1915 with the proven fact of genocide, which is the Holocaust. By equating the so-called "Armenian genocide" to the Holocaust, the Armenian side is trying to attach to these events the same level of importance, identity and tragic, that is given to the Holocaust around the world. Except for some marginal groups and authors, the whole world recognizes the Holocaust as genocide and a great tragedy. Perpetrators of this genocide are known. There are decisions of the Nuremberg Tribunal, as...


SEARCH FOR ALTERNATIVE TO TURKISH FOREIGN POLICY(8.12.2015)

Search for alternative to Turkish foreign policy

The jet crisis between Turkey and Russia has reminded us that foreign policy may prove extremely fragile and variable despite all calculations and predictions.Bewildered by fluctuations in the country's foreign policy, people are looking to foreign policy experts to guide them through the maze, to no avail. Attempts to analyze the situation as one wrought from self-defense have not helped cover up the fact that we nurture approaches which foster only short-term regional gains.Looking at the list of unsound approaches to examine the existing risks, we see that a populist approach, seeking to influence and impress the public and make them forget about views advocated them i...
