WILL AFGHANISTAN BECOME THE NEXT PROXY WAR?(13.03.2017)

Will Afghanistan Become The Next Proxy War?

Asst. Prof. Dr. Yusuf Çınar from the Department of International Relations in Bitlis Eren University interprets what further Russian involvement in Afghanistan of late could mean with regards to regional politics. The materialisation of the September 11 attacks in between the then on-going post-Cold War American global hegemony discussions once again put the spotlight back on Afghanistan. Afghanistan has turned into a matter of "prestige" during the War on Terror initiated by the George W. Bush administration. In other words, the "Enduring Freedom Operation" was the first indication that the USA was becoming a global hegemon. The US’ involvement in Afghanistan was unrivalled and dif...


A SHARP TURN IN TURKEY-RUSSIA RELATIONS(11.01.2017)

A Sharp Turn in Turkey-Russia Relations

1-What are the reasons that go beyond the assassination of the Russian Ambassador?I am on the opinion that the assassination of Ambassador Karlov is not a simple incident, the reason being that ambassadors only agree to participate in events if they are sure up until the very last second that there will be no security issues where they are going. Even the security guards closest to them learn about their daily program at the last second. If a young, 22-year old police officer is able to murder an ambassador, the issue requires to be examined.

Turkey-Iran Relations From the Perspective of July 15

In these days where we experience change of borders and regimes in the Middle East, especially with regards to the issues of regional stability and security affairs, Iran and Turkey have been forced into cooperation despite the regional rivalry between the two countries. In this w...

Turkish Stream Has Important Political Results

The meeting of Erdogan and Putin is multidimensional and has different results. The important items of the agenda are Turkish Stream, Akkuyu, visa requirements for Turkish citizens, and Syria. Turkish Stream Natural Gas Pipeline Project was signed during the meeting of Erdogan and Putin, and this was the main important development of the meeting. We can see the result of energy title immediately. Russia takes important steps on energy with Turkey, and this situation can create a new breath on the competition that exist on the energy in the region, because, the energy cooperation between Turkey and Russia cannot be limited only in the Black Sea region. The cooperat...


TURKEY-RUSSIA RELATIONSHIP: FROM CRISIS TO STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIP(8.10.2016)

Turkey-Russia Relationship: From Crisis to Strategic Partnership

On 24 November 2015 Russian aircraft violated the border of Turkey at least 2 km. After that, Turkey and Russia relationship had a crisis because Turkish Air Force jet shot down the Russian aircraft. Also during the violations of the Turkish border, Turkish officials gave multiple warnings to the pilot. Although Russian officials denied the violations of the Turkish border, it was proved with strong evidence. It should not forget that after the case of Russian aircraft, the measures taken by the Russian authorities, the crisis deepened. And this despite the fact that Turkey has not done anything illegal: the state violated airspace and was shot down by an intruder. Everyt...
