Ambassador Feridun Sinirlioğlu, a former Undersecretary at the Foreign Ministry who is Turkey’s new “point man” at the U.N., believes the Middle East has to move toward a secular and democratic future.
President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan definitely wants Turkey to be part of the Mosul operation and has the support of nationalists and Islamists alike.
It’s the same old story over and over again. If things are not going well in Turkey, then it must be outside forces who are behind this and who are also orchestrating an evil campaign against the country in the international media.
President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan clearly hoped for a new direction in foreign policy when he fired Ahmet Davutoğlu and replaced him with Binali Yıldırım as Prime Minister.
The security situation in Turkey is getting progressively worse. Yesterday we marked the first anniversary of the worse terrorist atrocity in Turkey since the founding of the republic.
Operation Euphrates Shield, the code name for Turkey’s military operation in Northern Syria against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), started well on Aug. 24 with minimal loss of life among Turkish soldiers and their Free Syrian Army (FSA) allies.
Turkey today is in desperate need of unity and calm. The failed coup attempt on July 15 came at a time when political tension was already high.
The visit by British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson to Ankara was bound to be one of the most difficult in his career.
Everyone agrees that if the coup attempt on July 15 had succeeded, Turkey’s economy would have gone into a tailspin.
“And, Oh God, please protect us from the wickedness of the educated!”
