Independent and cutting-edge analysis on Turkey and its neighborhood

 

The President of the French Republic has marked France’s will to establish a “stable and trusting relationship” with Turkey. This relationship should reflect the centuries-old friendship between our countries, our dense economic ties and our concurring analyses of many current issues, especially the Syrian crisis. In preparation for a visit by the President of the French Republic, I would like to encourage us here and now to drive forward our bilateral relations.
