Turkey in anticipation: will Putin visit the country?

Russian President Vladimir Putin may visit Turkey in October. A spokesman of Russian President Dmitry Peskov informed yesterday, commenting on the statement of the chairman of the Turkish Union of Chambers and Stock Exchanges Rifat Hisarciklioglu, who reported about the possibility of Putin’s visit to Turkey in October. Before the expected visit of the Russian leader to Turkey, the head of the Center for Turkish-Russian Studies, Aydin Sezer, and expert of the Strategic Outlook Institute, Mehmet Fatih Oztarsu, spoke about the issues of bilateral cooperation that will be discussed during the visit and it will affect the relations between Moscow and Ankara in an interview with Vestnik Kavkaza.

The South Caucasus and Its Neighborhood

The region of the South Caucasus is famous for its rich culture, and sadly, for numerous conflicts that sprung up as the Soviet Union was collapsing. Frustrated have been the hopes that after the initial spark of violence in the early 1990s, these conflicts would remain non-violent and “frozen” until sustainable peace was reached. In August 2008, bombs and shells ravaged the region, and this time around, not only Georgia, with South Ossetia, but also Russia openly engaged in violent confrontation. The tensions in the region of the Nagorno Karabakh conflict have also been on the rise. Not long before this publication was finalized, in April 2016, a round of intense clashes claimed the lives of dozens if not hundreds of Azerbaijanis and Armenians. On the other facet of the region, the long-awaited normalization between Turkey and Armenia did not take place either. The drastic deterioration of Russian-Turkish relations in late 2015 also adversely affected the South Caucasus and further demonstrated the fragility of the system of “unions” and “alliances” developed in the region after the collapse of the Soviet Union.

Russian-Turkish relations will be stronger than they were before crisis

Relations between Russia and Turkey not only returned to the previous level, but will get even stronger in some time after yesterday’s meeting between Presidents Vladimir Putin and Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Turkish experts Mehmet Perindzhek and Mehmet Fatih Oztarsu said.

Biz aslında Korelileri değil, Çinlileri dövecektik!
