The details of the “İncirlik agreement” signed between Turkey and the United States are taking shape by the day.
The details of the “İncirlik agreement” between Turkey and the U.S. have been gradually crystallizing.
During every Ramadan, news erupts in the Turkish press claiming China is oppressing Uighur Turks in the country and banning their practice of Islam.
Turkey and the U.S. have reached an agreement on anti-Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) struggle and are just about to start conducting joint operations against ISIL targets in northern Syria.
For the first time, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) opened fire on Turkish territory. For the first time, the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) attacked ISIL within Turkey
Turkey and Syrian Kurds have been at odds since the Kurds in northern Syria consolidated their power during the war in Syria.
“Turkey’s foremost priority, as a European country, is to continue its relations with the EU, being well aware that it is a great European state. Turkey will find its place in that world.”
“We are exchanging messages with the PYD [Democratic Union Party]. Our dialogue channels are open. The course of Turkey’s relations with the PYD depends on their attitude. Tal Abyad is a test case for them.”
It is one of Europe’s oldest people, yet has a Muslim majority. The whole nation is ethnically homogenous, yet split among three religions.
Turkey and Israel currently share a common fate. General elections were held in Israel three months ago and a new coalition in the Knesset was only last month formed - and is still “in flux.”
