An Interview with Prof. Hüsamettin Arslan About 15 July by Bengül Güngörmez

Bengül Güngörmez: On the night of July 15, 2016 Turkey witnessed outrageous incidents that will haunt people for years to come. A coup with a foreign reach was attempted, planned and conducted by FETÖ militants, and led by Fethullah Gülen. From the government to the opposition people from various segments of the society put up a great fight against the attempt. Some of them made history. We have martyrs and a great number of injured. Kids, women and elders were murdered by militants dressed in soldier uniforms. Our parliament was bombed the first time in its history. In a way, all the dropped bombs were dropped against the democracy. They bombarded our democracy. This cou...

Turkish choice between Shanghai, EU

Turkey, located between Europe and Asia, faces several conflicts due to recent political tension. Its geographical location provides significant opportunities as well as vital threats.

COMPLICATED FOREIGN POLICY OF TURKEY(2.03.2016)

Complicated Foreign Policy of Turkey

Turkey's foreign policy seems to be an entangled net of foreign relations. A NATO member and U.S. ally in the region, Ankara has grown distant toward Washington D.C. due to the American support for the Kurdish militias involved in the Syrian conflict. Once a major Russian tourist attraction, Turkey now faces an economic boycott after downing a Russian jet last year. The eternal EU candidate, Ankara was accused to be playing the refugees card in order to negotiate better deals with the EU (including the visa waivers and an assistance package). We have asked Mehmet Fatih Öztarsu, a Turkish political analyst, some questions about Turkey's complicated foreign policy.I...

G20 SUMMIT IN TURKEY(13.11.2015)

G20 Summit in Turkey

Mr. Yusuf, Turkey is host to G20 Summit, what are your observations concerning this meeting? In this framework, how will the Russian-Turkey relations continue?  How will the G20 Summit have an impact on Turkey-Russia-US relations?I consider that the G20 Summit is a great opportunity for Turkey to improve its image. Turkey, via the G20 Summit, might better express its concerns. As you know, regarding the campaign against ISIS, most European states accused Turkey for not supporting the effort enough. Turkey, recently, took influential steps in combating ISIS. Under this framework, the President Tayyip Erdogan will set up bilateral meetings with all ...
