Qatar crisis can by no means have a direct impact on Turkey, Yusuf Cinar, head of the Turkish analytical center, Strategic Outlook, told Trend June 5.The UAE, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Libya and Yemen announced about breaking their diplomatic relations with Qatar over Doha’s support for the Muslim Brotherhood, the world’s oldest Islamist movement, and also its ties with Saudis’ arch-rival Iran, sparking off simmering dispute in the Gulf Cooperation Council.“However, the Qatar crisis can have an indirect impact on Turkey both negatively and positively,” the expert said.He added that the crisis between Qatar and the six Arab countries is ...


SYRIAN CIVIL WAR (2011-2015): LOCAL AGREEMENTS BETWEEN FIGHTING PARTIES AND REFLECTIONS OF NATIONAL PEACE(5.10.2016)

Syrian Civil War (2011-2015): Local Agreements Between Fighting Parties and Reflections of National Peace

According to various sources, Syria has become a deadlock country of pain and tears, where at least 500.000 people have lost their lives, tens of thousands of people have been injured, and 6.5 billion of its people have become refugees with reference to the UN data. In 2011, when Arab Spring spread in waves from North Africa to the Middle East, Syria experienced counter-demonstrations and movements, especially against the state of emergency that the government declared in Daara between the 18th and 25th of March, which was met with the violent response of regime soldiers.

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.

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...


THE SECURITY AND POLITICAL CHALLENGES THAT TURKEY FACES(1.07.2016)

The Security and Political Challenges that Turkey Faces

The attack on Istanbul international airport, the fourth terrorist attack on Istanbul this year and second in June, sends a clear challenge that the Turkish authorities cannot afford to ignore. I want to list a few security policy and public policy related issues that are critical for Turkey:1.ISIS has now made Turkey its target. Turkey is the easiest target they can attack to make an immediate global media impact. 2.It is clear that Turkish security is unable to meet their challenge. ISIS and PKK are able to attack frequently and at high value targets. 3.The most worrying aspect is the ease with which foreign fighters for ISIS, the attackers were from the former Soviet...

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...
