Krasnodar, 22 November – Yug Times. Yunus Emre Özigci, Consul General of Turkey in Novorossiysk, reflects upon the significance of political reforms and economic cooperation with Kuban.

Q.: Last summer, Turkey underwent significant political changes – the country parliamentary to presidential systems. What changes will ensue from this?

A.: Turkey is a dynamically developing country. The contemporary Turkey continues to change, and at the same time to become better for the benefit of its citizens. By these changes we are trying to grant the dwellers of our country more opportunities for self-development.

Q.: Will Turkey change its priorities in foreign politics?

A.: We do not expect big transformations in the foreign policy of the Republic of Turkey – it will preserve the existing course. Turkey’s foreign policy is based on certain principles. Of course, Russia will remain a country with which Turkey is friends and is ready to fruitfully cooperate.

Q.: Does Turkey’s foreign policy bear a social character?

A.: In 2017, Turkey was recognized the world’s leader on the volumes of rendered humanitarian aid. These were the conclusions made by the UK Development Initiatives in their Global humanitarian assistance report. We allocated over USD 8 billion for humanitarian assistance [in 2017]. Just to compare: the USA allocated a little more than USD 6.6 billion, and Germany – almost USD 3 billion.

Q.: You have been working as Consul General in Novorossiysk for a year and a half already?

A.: The main purpose of any diplomatic representation opened in any country is to render consul services to own citizens. We, of course, do fully fulfil all respective functions. But here it’s not like it is in Germany – there are quite few Turkish citizens here. This is why we are focused on another function of diplomatic representations that is becoming more and more vital. What is at issue is rendering of maximum possible assistance to the development of Russian – Turkish relations.
