  • TURKEY IS THE BIGGEST TEST FOR THE EU PROJECT

    Daily Sabah-24.06.2016-Fahrettin Altun The EU's systematic search to keep Turkey outside is shrinking Europe and putting the European Union project into a crisis. At the time I wrote this piece, the results of the referendum on whether the U.K. will remain in the European Union had not yet been finalized. But no matter the result of the referendum, the U.K., having solidified its

  • TURKEY REVISES ITS FOREIGN POLICY TO GAIN

    Daily Sabah-22.06.2016-Ragıp Soylu PM Yıldırım's speeches show that a new era has started in Turkish politics. Now, Ankara would like to see its former allies again as new friends while focusing more on domestic peace and unity.

  • TURKEY’S POTENTIAL

The strong decline in unemployment, particularly in non-agricultural unemployment, and the rise in tax revenues in the budget compared to last year is important. However, Turkey

  • MUHAMMAD ALI FIRST DIVIDED, THEN UNITED THE

    Daily Sabah-08.06.2016-Ragıp Soylu The Turkish public, regardless of its ideological differences and opinions, mourns Muhammad Ali's death. It is quite surprising. After all, Turks are known for their disagreements on almost everything. Yet, an American Muslim boxer is somehow a uniting voice for them. It is not a new phenomenon either. Back in the 1970s, people in Turkish cities would wake up in

  • GERMANY’S ARMENIAN RESOLUTION: UNLAWFUL

    Al Jazeera-06.06.2016-İbrahim Kalın The resolution showed that politicising history for the sake of accomplishing short-term goals does more harm than good. On June 2, the German Parliament adopted a controversial resolution declaring the tragic events of 1915 a genocide. This politically motivated decision is unlawful, misguided and ultimately harmful to the prospect of reconciliation between Turks and Armenians. First of all, it is important to

  • GENOCIDE ALLEGATIONS AS POLITICAL INSTRUMENT

    Daily Sabah-07.06.2016-Beril Dedeoğlu A number of parliaments around the world have adopted similar laws on the Armenian genocide issue, so one can say the international community has already made its decision about the matter. Laws are being adopted in parliaments, which are political institutions, so it is also a fact that talking about the Armenian genocide is essentially political. In 2004, Dutch parliament

  • IS TURKEY’S SYRIA AND RUSSIA POLICY GOING

    Yeni Şafak English-30.05.2016-İbrahim Karagül Let's start off with questions: Is there going to be a change in Turkey's Syria policy? Is there any chance of Turkey-Russia ties improving? Can Turkey, which has resisted the terror in the country and the “internal invasion” attempt disguised as terror with very heavy operations and achieved great success, turn toward the other side of the border after this?

  • WORLD HUMANITARIAN SUMMIT AND THE UN QUESTION

    Daily Sabah-24.05.2016 The first U.N. World Humanitarian Summit has been held in Istanbul. One of the most important things that a comprehensive humanitarian summit must carry out is a bold criticism of the U.N.'s structure and functioning. Unfortunately, the U.N. cannot resolve the far-reaching problems of humanity today. This being the case, humanity needs a universal institution that addresses the issues of

  • TURKEY SHINES AT WORLD HUMANITARIAN SUMMIT

    Daily Sabah-İlnur Çevik-24.05.2016  The first World Humanitarian Summit hosted in Istanbul has been a stark reminder of the plight of hundreds of millions of people around the globe at the hands of tyrants, modern-day colonialists and the rich countries that simply have no care for the needy.

  • EU SHOULD SUPPORT TURKEY’S FIGHT AGAINST

    13.05.2016-Daily Sabah-İbrahim Kalın For Turkey, visa liberalization for the Schengen zone is not worth placing national security and political goals at risk. The visa liberalization agreement seems in jeopardy after the EU put in conditions for Turkey to change its anti-terrorism laws. This is a bad move to say the least, and has the potential to derail the Turkey-EU road map that is

  • ALEPPO BURNING

    11.05.2016-Daily Sabah-İbrahim Kalın The fall of Aleppo will be a key gain for the regime and its backers, however, it will deepen the already tragic humanitarian situation on the ground and will embolden the Assad regime in the face of the indifference of the world toward the most cruel and brutal war in recent times.  The Syrian war, now in its fifth year,
