"Throw out the frying pan into the fire", or why Erdogan is nervous

Turkish newspapers call to abandon the anti-Russian publications.

Ankara and the EU continue to exchange information and political blow. Recall that the worsening of relations between the two began after the authorities of certain European countries banned the campaign rallies among the Turkish community in connection with the forthcoming referendum in Turkey on changes to the Constitution 16 April. Features highlight the confrontation between Turkey and Germany, although Ankara would not provoke a diplomatic crisis with the country as it does with the Netherlands. A few days ago Volker Bufe, headed by deputy chairman of the German Chancellor Angela Merkel of the Christian Democratic Union, said that the President of Turkey is an unwelcome guest in Germany. According to him, "if he (Redzhep Tayip Erdogan - ST) come here, in my opinion, we should not let him in, because it threatens the security of our country." In response, the Turkish president said that after the referendum to extend presidential powers his country could review relations with the "fascist, cruel, anti-Islamic and anti-Turkish" Europe.

Plots in this area, causing political irritation between Turkey and the EU, thrown a lot. At the same time, according to European analysts, trying to understand some of the nuances of the current tension between Ankara and Brussels, the two sides still "are playing within certain parameters," and on the side of Erdogan "a certain initiative." The President is deliberately aggravate mobilizing to take advantage of objectively existing in Turkey's anti-Western sentiment, to achieve its goal - to win the referendum. Thus on it subconsciously and his supporters inspire the electorate the idea that "the West will never lose Turkey, given its important strategic position in the region," which is only being built by them "power vertical" is able to cope with the challenges and threats faced by the a country. And when the European Commissioner for Neighborhood Policy and negotiations on expanding Johannes Hahn said that "Turkey is moving further away from the European Union", Ankara says that "Europe and had not wanted to integrate with Turkey."

At the same time, some European politicians believe that immediately after the referendum, Erdogan, of course, if he wins, "will reassess the situation in view of the fact that Turkey has extensive contacts with the European market, especially Germany, to lose that it is very dangerous for its economy. " This, for example, the chairman of the European Parliament Antonio Tajani: "Turkey is still our partner. I think that after the referendum, Ankara will lower the tone of the rhetoric, and therefore we should continue to work on our agreements. " Perhaps it will be so. But it will be only after the Turkish newspaper Yeni Safak, when "Brussels is often taken instead Ankara's final decision." The paradox is just that, have to assess other Turkish newspaper Daily Sabah, «the Western politicians, who have recently praised the model of the Party of Justice and Development in the Muslim world, believed Turkey dominating the region, now prefer to ignore the series of events that actually We changed the national identity of Turkey. "

In this regard, the newspaper is defined by these issues. В этой связи газета задается такими вопросами. Первый: «Почему когда Турция стала пытаться решать свои новые геополитические задачи, она оказалась в одиночестве?» Второй: «Почему Эрдоган, которому обещали сделать Турцию неотъемлемой частью будущей Европы, стал изображаться в образе диктатора, каким еще недавно считался президент Сирии Башар Асад?» Третий: «Почему Турция, которая после развала СССР стала считать себя чуть ли не главным ключевым игроком на Ближнем Востоке, оказалась вынужденной, как пишет французское издание Le Figaro, считаться с фактором России, оказавшейся непосредственно у ее границ?» Определенный ответ на эти вопросы риторического свойства заключается в том, что турецкая дипломатия, возглавляемая долгое время профессором Ахметом Давутоглу, утеряла свои профессиональные качества и руководствовалась в практической деятельности оторванными от реальности идеологемами неоосманизма. Она просчитала грамотно только одну позицию: «отход» США с Ближнего Востока в годы президентства Барака Обамы. Однако вмешательство в сирийские дела кардинальным образом изменило не только соотношение сил в регионе, но и развитие событий — вместо ожидаемого в Анкаре распада Сирии она такую угрозу получила уже для себя. She miscalculated competently only one position: the US "withdrawal" from the Middle East during the presidency Baraka Obamy. However, interference in Syrian affairs radically changed not only the balance of forces in the region, but also the development of events - instead of the expected is such a threat to the collapse of Syria, Ankara has already received for themselves.

Then Turkey has emerged all easy. She was forced to join the unprecedented by historical standards, the alliance with Russia and Iran. Now Erdogan attacks the West, having behind the alliance, but he is not sure what will happen tomorrow as events unfold in Syria. President nervous. As said in an interview with Focus, Klaus Kinkel, who served as foreign minister in the government Gelmuta Kolya, and which has always stood for rapprochement with Turkey, considering it "a bridge to the Islamic world and an important partner for NATO," he "had never seen a politician led behaving as allows itself to President Erdogan. " How to not be nervous, if the EU and the US continue to actively support the Syrian Kurds, if carried out in Syria Turks "Operation Euphrates Shield", according to Western media, "was completely blocked: a Syrian army of the south and east, in Mandzhiba area still Syrian soldiers, accompanied by Russian soldiers, which is located in a narrow buffer zone between the Turkish troops and the Syrian Kurds, also supports the Syrian Arab fighters. "

President Donald Trump is in no hurry to take in Washington President Erdogan, who has already paid a visit to Moscow to his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin. Folding syntax international relations pushes Ankara to Moscow. Such tactics calculated to aggravate relations with the West, with the expectation of an alliance with Russia, the French historian Anri Loran designated as "throw out the frying pan into fire." The German edition of the Tageszeitung writes in this regard, that "both countries are like trying to force myself to sympathize with each other", and Turetskaya Milli Gazete made an appeal to the Turkish media refuse to publish anti-Russian materials. Let's see what happens.
