Quotes

...Speaking at an iftar in Erbaa, Tokat province, on Wednesday, Erdoğan said: "If they are true believers, they should release our brothers. That's what we expect." He also used the term “organization” in reference to ISIL for the first time in a public statement...
" [?] Interestingly enough, up until very recently Turkey used to be named as the first country that would oppose any Kurdish declaration of independence. Accordingly, it was asserted that Washington was working very hard both openly and clandestinely to convince Ankara to accept an independent Kurdistan. But given where we are now, if Arbil were to declare independence Ankara is pretty near the bottom of the list of those countries that would object. I do not think that this is "an American project." While intense economic relations with the Iraqi Kurds starting with oil deals are extremely important, America has not been the key in the Kurds getting to this point."
