Political Strategies in a Multi-Polar World. Where is European Union in All This Story?

... on the international arena because it doesn’t have its own army. So, in terms of security, the EU depends on a relatively complicated relation with NATO, given that there are NATO member states which are not members of the European Union, such as Turkey, and EU states that are not NATO members, such as Finland or Cyprus.

Britain, Greece, Turkey and The Aegean: Does Anything Change?

... This is likely to have an effect on the German institutional psyche, still intent on being seen to be humanitarian, to balance the horrors perpetrated in the past. This leaves us with a potential disagreement between the Franco-German axis and thus the EU (even with a Germany being reluctant to criticise Turkey too obviously) on the one hand, and the US-UK-Israel axis on the other. Although the US is still trying, with the UK (and, until recently, Germany) to force Greece and Turkey to talk to each other on an equal footing, this is precisely what Turkey ...

The Dangers Of Parachute Journalism

... ‘report’ – devoid of analysis – in the same newspaper, entitled – more in the style of a tabloid paper than a serious one – ‘Moscow on the Med: Cyprus and its Russians’, and dramatically sub-titled ‘As tensions between the Kremlin and EU rise, the tiny island has become a Petri dish of western worries’. This is tabloid sensationalism. The title sets the tone. The reader is meant to assume, without any evidence offered, that tensions between the EU and Moscow are rising, and that ...

The Greek Immigrant Crisis: Old Invasions, New Colours

... along with the Jews, from Spain in 1492. The Turkish Ottomans were happy to welcome the Jews to their empire. Since then, Zionists and Turks have had a generally good understanding, whatever Erdogan’s pro-Palestinian rhetoric. For example, Israel and Turkey are both vehemently opposed to Assad. Source: Alexandros Avramidis/Reuters Despite Christian Europe being under attack from Moslem Turks, this had not prevented the allegedly Christian crusaders from exploiting a dynastic squabble in Constantinople to destroy Constantinople and take over most of the Eastern Roman Empire ...

The failed coup may well accelerate the recent Russo-Turkish détente

... consolidation of Erdogan’s personal power, ongoing purges in Turkish universities, the media and the judiciary, and suggestions that Turkey might reinstate the death penalty – all of these developments only serve to deepen the differences between Turkey and the EU. Moscow therefore appears to be an important partner of convenience for Erdogan. However, the key question remains: can Moscow and Ankara reconcile their positions on such complex matters as Syria, the Kurds, Armenia and, among other files, Crimea?...

Russia has to find different set of paradigm for its economic sustainability

... needs to have a favorable international environment if it intends to modernize itself. Further, Kortunov noted that the relations between Russia and the major players are not perfect to put it mildly. “Russia is under sanctions from the US and the European Union,” he said. “Russia has very complicated relations with its neighbors in the West and has a crisis in relations with Turkey.” These are the top challenges which are typical for any country in the world that is vulnerable to the threat of terrorism, challenges of migration and many have to confront the challenges of climate change and environmental problems, according ...

The Oxymoronic Déjà Vu of Humanitarian Bombing in Syria

... essentially, his own people. The first, logically obvious question is why would Assad essentially commit suicide? Why would he do the one thing that was sure to infuriate his enemies, undermine the diplomatic positions of his friends, and alienate all neutrals while he was gradually winning the war, and at a time when UN chemical inspectors were in Damascus? The sceptic observer cannot help but remember the false intelligence on which the 2003 US invasion of Iraq was founded; Saddam Hussein did not ...
