VEFA FEREÇ’S INTERVIEW WITH YUSUF ÇıNAR ON TURKEY’S LETTER OF APOLOGY TO RUSSIA(23.07.2016)

Vefa Fereç’s Interview with Yusuf Çınar on Turkey’s Letter of Apology to Russia

1.Do you think that Erdoğan’s apology is expressed as shown above, or is that a step taken to face the public’s reaction?With this letter, Turkey has taken an important step to end the tension, and expressed the sadness which resulted from the shooting of the plane. In my opinion, it is normal that Russia has made a statement that Turkey has apologized in order to relieve the public opinion. On the other hand, Turkey tells its people that it has not apologized, but expressed sadness. Both Russia and Turkey are big states; in this process, they can tell “white lies” in order not to disregard the sensitivities of their domestic public sphere and to convince them. Th...

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 ...


TURKEY AS A COUNTRY OF MISSED OPPORTUNITIES: A CALL FOR A MAJOR REVISION IN TURKISH POLITICS(24.05.2016)

Turkey as A Country of Missed Opportunities: A Call For a Major Revision in Turkish Politics

As Prime Minister Prof. Davutoğlu once said, Turkey is a country of opportunities. We keep missing economic, political and historical opportunities one after the other. Even worse, we keep blaming “others,” mostly western powers for all the bad things happen to us where in fact we ourselves are the ones who share the bigger part of the responsibility. We are the ones who could not change the Constitution for 14 years, we ourselves neglected EU “homeworks,” democratic-political reforms, we are the ones who started repeating the same old mistakes the ancient Kemalist regime had done for decades, we kept dragging in completing the reforms to permanently solve the...

Interview with Yusuf Çınar About Turkey and EU: Visa Agreement and Refugee Problem

1.How do you think, can Turkey and EU make a final deal about visa liberalization and what is needed for the agreement?The European Commission proposed  to the European Parliament and Council of the European Union to lift the visa requirements for the citizens of Turkey, However Visa Liberalisation Roadmap is including some false steps. The agreement has not talked under the natural circumstances. Because, more than a million migrants and refugees crossed into Europe in 2015. Migrants made the journey overland through Turkey,Greece,Western Balkans. The Refugee agreement to design Turkey’s Position as a barrier against Refugees. On the other hand visa liberalization w...

Azerbaijan-Armenia Conflict and The Relations Between Turkey and Russia

Can you to evaluate the conflicts which will go down in history as the 5-day war? Can you also share your thoughts regarding the five day silence of Russia? What will you say regarding Turkey's support, and the interpretation of it by other countries as ‘Turkey pushing Azerbaijan into war’?Right after Russia State Department spokesperson Maria Zaharova stated that the crisis between Russia and Turkey is brief, Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu stated that tensions between two countries are temporary. There was an expectation regarding the moderation of Turkey-Russia relations after these two statements. The re-emergence of Azerbaijan-Armenia tensions have lessened this moderation po...
