• Turkologist: Turkey feels more isolated today (video)

    After Crimea’s succession to Russia, Turkey feels even more isolated, says Turkologist Artak Shakaryan.

    “Moscow has changed the Black Sea balance in favor of Russia,” he said commenting on Russia-Turkey relations. However, the political analyst says Turkey will not hurry to take drastic measures against Moscow as it imports gas and oil from Russia. Besides, Russia is constructing a nuclear power plant in Turkey.

    Nor will Turkey spoil its relations with Russia for the Crimea Tatars.

    “Nothing will be done on an official level although non-official reports say that Turkey is sending arms to Crimean Tatars,” he said.

    Artak Shakaryan believes that the globe is on the threshold of a cold war, which is not beneficial for Armenia.
