Countries are often guided by interests but they know who the Turkish president is
Europe’s right-wingers are willing to listen to everything, even what Erdogan says about our country’s immigration behavior, since a logic prevails “it doesn’t matter who says it”. On the contrary, at the level of leadership and official policy, things are different, says International Relations professor Kostas Yfantis to SKAI FM.
Countries are often guided by interests but they know who the Turkish president is. Turkey wants to show the world that it is now a great power. He would love to join the Big 5 club (The UN Security Council is made up of 15 members of which five are permanent members and ten are non-permanent members with two-year terms.
The permanent members are the United States of America, the Russian Federation, the People’s Republic of China, the United Kingdom and the French Republic) the professor states. In addition to the attack on our country, eleven (11) pages of speech that showed how important Turkey is was delivered by the Turkish President at the UN. I wonder if rationality has completely abandoned the Turkish leadership, wonders the professor rhetorically.
