“The Western world did not side with Turkey’s people and democracy following the coup. What’s more, it used the administration’s fight against terror organizations – FETO foremost among them – to criticize Turkey.”
It is crucial to give prominence to the founding aspects of the July 15 spirit to achieve a more democratic and powerful Turkey.
Following the independence referendum held in the KRG last September, with Nechirvan Barzani’s attendance to Erdogan’s inauguration, Turkish government and KRG administration have began to re-build relations.
The July 15 coup attempt in Turkey was the first in which the Turkish state and its people stood against illegitimate military personnel.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced his first cabinet under the newly established presidential governance system.
With the new system, Turkey has now caught a great chance to develop comprehensive policies to build a better future and prevent turmoil.
When names in the new cabinet announced by President Erdogan on Monday are examined, it can be observed that the main trigger behind its formation is expertise with bureaucratic and technological knowledge.
In the post-elections era, Ankara is set to follow a multi-dimensional independent foreign policy, facing both regional and global challenges by pursuing rational steps and strategies.
“Under current circumstances, Western governments would be wise to take stock of the past five years if they hope to enjoy closer relations with Turkey in the next five years.”
Western media needs to direct itself toward correct news and information sources about Turkey. However, in order to do so, it needs to give up its ideological approach to Turkey and Erdogan. If it does not do this, it will continue to lose its reputation while also causing anti-Western sentiment to rise in Turkey.
