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 the Ties Between Turkey and Israel Geo-Economics Should Trump Geo-Politics

In the hour of need, when the Russian-Turkish diplomatic confrontation over the downed Russian Su-24 jet, Israeli Prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu reiterated his willingness to sell natural gas to Turkey. Turkey is going to experience crunch in energy as the result of an escalating anti-Turkish sanctions imposed by Russia since the incident, when the two Turkish F-15s downed the Russian SU-24 jet which entered for about 15 seconds the Turkish airspace on November 24. Turkey imports 60 percent of its natural gas from Russia and Russia, undoubtedly, is going to use an “energy” weapon to pressure Turkey like it did in in 1996 and 1999 against Ukraine.An here geo-economics e...
