Armenia is receiving positive signals from Turkey and is ready to respond positively, Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinian said on Friday.

Pashinian spoke about his assessments of the agenda items at a government meeting in the capital Yerevan.

Pashinian also referred to the relations between Turkey and Armenia in his speech and said: “We are receiving clear positive signals from the Turkish public. We will evaluate these signals, (by) responding to positive signals with positive signals.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said on August 25: “We expressed that with the end of the occupation of Nagorno-Karabakh, a new window of opportunity has opened in our region for lasting peace and that we will do what is necessary if Armenia considers it. . “

Erdoğan has repeatedly proposed the creation of a six-country regional cooperation platform, saying it would be a win-win initiative for all regional actors in the Caucasus.

Commenting on his proposal to form a regional cooperation platform of six countries, Erdoğan said it was an initiative that can offer win-win opportunities for all parties: “If Armenia joins this process and takes positive steps, a new page in Turkey- Relations with Armenia can be opened. If new opportunities arise, it is obvious that Armenia will also have a serious advantage. Armenia will be the party that benefits the most.

Ankara has pledged its full support to Baku in its efforts to liberate its lands from Armenian occupation. About 20% of Azerbaijani territory had been under illegal Armenian occupation for almost three decades. In the most recent conflict which began on September 27, Azerbaijan reclaimed much of the land in and around the Nagorno-Karabakh enclave that it lost in a 1991-1994 war that killed around 30,000 people and forced many more to leave their homes.

After the signing on November 10 of a deal brokered by Russia to end the fighting and work towards a comprehensive resolution, Turkey agreed with Russia that its troops would also monitor the ceasefire. Ankara and Moscow signed an agreement to establish a joint observation center in Nagorno-Karabakh.

VAN, Turkey – In the days before the Taliban captured Kabul, an Afghan woman was doubled over sobbing on a bench at a bus station in eastern Turkey, her children moaning at her feet.

Fourteen Turkish security and migration officials rushed at her and other Afghan asylum seekers as our reporting team interviewed them, as part of an intensive Turkish crackdown to apprehend Afghans crossing through Iran by the thousands and to prevent journalists from reporting their plight. As her husband tried to gather their things, the woman grabbed her stomach and gagged. After prolonged interrogation, they were escorted to a police vehicle.

“We have come out of despair,” said another Afghan, 17-year-old Gul Ahmad. “We knew that if the Taliban got the upper hand, they would kill us – either fighting or recruiting us. So it was the best option for the family.

Even before last week’s heart-wrenching scenes of Afghans flocking to Kabul airport to escape the Taliban, thousands of people regularly fled their country by land, heading some 1,400 miles through Iran. to the Turkish border. Their own desperate efforts to escape the Taliban have unfolded in calmer, but no less painful, pictures at distant border posts like the one in the eastern town of Van.

In recent months, as the NATO-led mission in Afghanistan collapsed, 30,000 Afghans were leaving Afghanistan every week, not all but many across the Iranian border, according to the International Organization for Human Rights. migrations. They have topped the list of asylum seekers attempting to travel to Turkey and then to Europe, supplanting Syrians as the largest group of new arriving migrants, even as the overall number of migrations has fallen since. summit of 2015.

Now that the Taliban are in power, there is every indication that these numbers will rise further as people have started selling goods and talking about permanent exile.

Many Afghans interviewed in recent weeks said they had crossed in large groups – sometimes hundreds of people – but only a small number had managed to escape Turkish border guards. Thousands of Afghans have massed in the border region of Iran, they said.

While recent violent upheavals in the world have displaced millions of people, whether from Iraq, Syria or parts of Africa, the timing of the final chapter of the war in Afghanistan has left Afghans at the end of their tether. roll, and most likely without recourse.

As in Europe, public opinion in Turkey has turned against immigrants and refugees, sometimes resulting in violence, such as knife fighting and a recent attack on Syrian homes in the capital, Ankara. The scale of Turkey’s pushback has increased dramatically since last month, said Afghans, human rights observers and even government officials.

For Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the burden of hosting so many refugees – 3.6 million Syrians and over 300,000 Afghans, among others – has become a burning political issue, especially as Turkey’s economy s ‘is deteriorated. He made it clear that he did not intend to open the door to more Afghans.

When photos appeared on social media of columns of Afghan migrants crossing Iran to Turkey in recent weeks, opposition politicians accused Erdogan of negotiating a deal with the European Union, as he said. had done for the Syrian refugees, to accommodate the growing number of Afghans. arriving.

Mr Erdogan has often used the threat of migrants as leverage in negotiations with the European Union, while his police have long carried out ruthless operations to control the numbers of migrants and their perceptions at home. But he also criticized Western countries for expecting less developed countries to endure the migrant crisis.

“Europe, which has become a center of attraction for millions of people, cannot stay out of this problem by firmly closing its borders in order to protect the security and prosperity of its citizens,” he said. said in a televised speech last week. “Turkey has no duty, responsibility or obligation to be the repository for refugees from Europe.

Mr Erdogan warned German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Sunday by telephone that his country “will not be able to shoulder the additional burden” in the event of a new wave of migration from Afghanistan. Turkey, he reminded Merkel, “has already taken in five million refugees”.

Afghans interviewed in Van said Turkey had stepped up security along its border with a widespread and often violent police operation in recent weeks, turning back Afghans regardless of their asylum claims.

In a single operation in July, more than 1,400 Afghans who entered Turkey were rounded up and driven back by Turkish border guards and military police, according to a statement from the governor’s office in Van.

Hundreds more, including women and children, have been detained in towns in eastern Turkey as they tried to go deeper into the country.

Such deportations violate the international refugee convention, said Mahmut Kacan, a Van lawyer specializing in refugee and asylum cases.

Few Afghans know their rights under international law, he said, but Turkey does not even respect its own laws, as migrants should have the right to an appeal process before being deported.

The Afghan family recently detained at the Van bus station were sent to a migrant center and then returned to Iran within days without due process, according to another Afghan, Abdul Wahid, who was detained at the same time.

In an interview before their arrest, husband Najibullah, 30, said they had made the arduous three-day trip with their 1-year-old twins to Turkey three times in the past few weeks, only to be pushed back each time . The children had lost weight considerably, he said.

His wife, Zeineb, 20, seemed very shaken by the experience. “It would have been better to stay and die in Afghanistan than to take this trip,” she said. They only gave their first names out of fear because of their undocumented status in Turkey.

The ethnic Uzbek family left home two months ago in part because the Taliban had taken control of their district in northern Afghanistan. “We had nothing,” Najibullah said. “They ordered us to cook for them. We could barely feed ourselves.

Mr. Wahid was deported after spending four days in a migrant center, and sent a phone message from Iran about what had happened.

Mr. Wahid lived in Turkey and had come to Van to help his wife and two children attempt to enter the country from Iran. They had crossed the border 10 times in recent weeks in an attempt to reach him in Istanbul, where he worked in a textile factory, he said, but every time they entered Turkey, the police caught them and them. returned. They were once detained in Tatvan, a town over a hundred miles from the border, he said.

“My wife asked them for asylum,” he said. “She said she wanted to send her children to school. At first they said OK, then they kicked her out.

Many Afghans interviewed said they were looking for economic opportunities but the Taliban’s advances and killings prompted them to leave. Two in a dozen interviewed for two days recently said they had family members who had been killed by the Taliban.

A teenager, Ilias, 15, in a bright yellow T-shirt and black jacket, said he fled with three friends from his home village in Daikundi, central Afghanistan, after that his father was killed by the advancing Taliban forces three or four months ago.

“The Taliban started attacking our area and people started defending my village, and that’s when my father was killed,” he said. “We are all three from the same neighborhood and we managed to get out,” he said, pointing to his companions.

They were stopped by the Taliban on the way and questioned, stolen by human traffickers in Iran, and arrived in Turkey without food or money to continue their journey.

A crowd stands around a burning car in Altındağ, Ankara. Screenshot of BBC video titled “What Happened in Altındağ?” “

A fight between a group of Syrian migrants and residents of the Turkish capital of Ankara on August 12 reflected worsening anti-immigrant sentiment in the country. Two Turkish citizens were stabbed in a clash, one of whom died after has been taken at a hospital. The incident sparked further violence as crowds ransacked and vandalized shops, homes and cars belonging to Syrian immigrants in Ankara’s Altindag neighborhood, which is residence to a large number of Syrians. The police have detained until now 76 people.

During the day, young Turks formed groups to “bring order” to the neighborhoods. They are looking for Syrians.

Riot police at the scene were understood urging residents not to allow any provocation.

What will those who incite Syrian hatred on a daily basis to the racist attacks against the stabbings of two young people in Altındağ say after the death of 18-year-old Emirhan Yalçın? The perpetrator has been arrested, but will those who robbed the houses and injured the child be identified?

The district governor, who reportedly arrived at the scene, tried to defuse the tensions. But the rebellious crowd continued to voice their dissatisfaction as reported by BBC Turkish Service. “All [Syrians] must be made redundant, ”a woman shouted while another local said:

Just because we give them homes, economic opportunities, they think they’re above us. Then they come and say they don’t want Afghans in this country.

Talk to the Turkish service of the BBC, another resident of the area where the attacks took place said:

What will they do? Take them away? Instead, we say, give us half an hour. We’ll, as a nation, get them in half an hour. Our goal is not to kill them, but to send them back. They should go.

Meanwhile, Syrian residents have expressed concern for the safety of their families. A Syrian resident, whose domicile has been targeted says he will move as soon as possible and is afraid for his three children.

Anti-immigrant sentiments have reached a new high as Turkey finds itself hosting thousands of Afghan migrants fleeing for their safety. This coincided with a growing disillusion against the refugee agreement reached between Ankara and Brussels in 2016 in response to the Syrian refugee crisis. According to the agreement, Turkey stopped the influx of Syrian migrants to Europe in exchange for visa concessions and € 6 billion in aid to Syrians arriving in Turkey.

Other the reasons understand the current economic crisis, as evidenced by rising unemployment, inflation and currency devaluation.

The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees estimates that around four million refugees, mostly Syrians, live in Turkey. Afghans are the second largest group.

But patience is running out as Turkey grapples with an influx of refugees, and an EU unwilling to follow through on 2016 pledges to flatten Turkey’s EU membership negotiations and concessions. visa for Turkish citizens.

On July 18, the leader of the opposition People’s Party of the Republic tweeted that Turkey would not become “an open prison for refugees”.

A week later, following a maintenance conducted by the German newspaper Bild with Austrian Prime Minister Sebastian Kurz who said Turkey was a more suitable place for Afghan migrants, the Turkish Foreign Ministry published a declaration, saying: “Turkey will not welcome a new wave of migration” and that “Turkey will not be a border guard or a refugee camp for the EU”.

Some local observers said such statements as well as the lack of sound policies in place should be blamed for growing anti-immigrant sentiments in the country, with the clash in Ankara as a recent example.

Speaking to Deutsche Welle, sociologist Ulaş Sanata said:

Tensions between refugees and residents have never been properly defused. There have been a lot of mistakes in immigration policy. He was not transparent and poorly communicated.

Meanwhile, Metin Çorabatır, President of the Asylum and Immigration Research Center (IGAM), blame rhetoric used by politicians threatening to send immigrants home or refusing to accept more before the next election in 2023.

Çorabatır was referring to a July 16 tweet from Republic Party (CHP) opposition party leader Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu, who claimed that once in power, the CHP would dismiss the Syrians.

If we become the government of the day, we will say goodbye to our Syrian guests. This is one of our five goals. We have our plans and programs ready. I wanted this video to be here as proof.

The leader of another Iyi opposition party, Meral Akşener, used similar rhetoric. Akşener said the government should get in touch with the Syrian leadership and send the Syrians back to their country as soon as possible.

Our General President, Meral Akşener said what needs to be done to the government that has turned our country into a ditch for migrants;
– Stop the arrival of Afghans left at our borders by the Iranian government.
– Explain what was discussed with Biden.
– Syrian refugees must be returned to their country.

Nezih Onur Kuru, political scientist Recount Al-Monitor in an interview that anti-Syrian violence in Ankara was “neither new nor surprising”. According to Kuru’s own research, there have been at least “246 separate incidents of violence against Syrian refugees since 2011”.

The situation has not always been so dire. According to a survey in 2012, only 52% of Turkish citizens disagreed with hosting Syrian refugees. But in a September 2018 poll, 83% of Turkish citizens already have negative opinions about Syrians.

Currently, the Syrians are under “temporary protection“by the government. As the government indicates on its website, temporary protection includes education for all children, health care and suitable places of worship, in addition to adult education centers that wish to have sufficient skills to work in Turkey.

ATHENS / ALGIERS, Aug.11 (Reuters) – Exhausted Greek firefighters battled fires for a ninth day on Wednesday amid sweltering temperatures that also helped fuel forest fires in Algeria, where at least 65 people have died , and in southern Italy.

From Turkey to Tunisia, countries around the Mediterranean have seen some of their highest temperatures in decades, as the United Nations climate panel warned this week that the world was dangerously close to uncontrollable warming. Read more

Greece, in the grip of its worst heatwave in three decades, has evacuated around 20 villages from the Peloponnese, although ancient Olympia, site of the first Olympic Games, has escaped hell.

About 580 Greek firefighters, aided by French, British, German and Czech colleagues, were fighting fires in Gortynia, near Olympia.

Outbreaks continued to ravage Euboea, Greece’s second largest island, just off the mainland east of Athens and the scene of some of the worst devastation in the past week.

“If helicopters and water bombers had arrived right away and had been operating for six or seven hours, the fire would have been extinguished on the first day,” said cafe owner Thrasyvoulos Kotzias, 34, looking at a beach empty in the seaside resort of Pefki. on Evia.

Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis called it a “nightmare summer” and apologized for the failures in tackling some of the more than 500 forest fires that have raged in Greece. Read more

“OUR IDENTITY TURNS TO ASH”

Across the Mediterranean, the Algerian government has deployed the military to help fight the fires that have ravaged forest areas in the north of the country, killing at least 65 people, including 28 soldiers. Read more

The hardest hit area was Tizi Ouzou, the largest district in the mountainous Kabylia region, where houses burned down and residents fled to seek refuge in hotels, hostels and university accommodation in neighboring towns.

President Abdelmadjid Tebboune has declared three days of national mourning for the dead.

In southern Italy, fires ravaged thousands of acres of land as temperatures hit record highs well above 40 degrees Celsius (104 ° F) and hot winds fanned the flames.

Firefighters said on Twitter that they had carried out more than 3,000 operations in Sicily and Calabria in the past 12 hours, deploying seven planes to try to put out the flames.

“We are losing our history, our identity is reduced to ashes, our soul is burning,” Calabrian mayor Giuseppe Falcomata wrote on Facebook after a 76-year-old man died when flames engulfed his house.

A 30-year-old man died near the city of Catania when his tractor overturned while carrying water to put out the flames, local media reported.

The Tunisian capital, Tunis, recorded its highest temperature on Tuesday at 49 ° C (120 ° F), the Meteorological Institute said.

Turkey has also suffered nearly 300 forest fires in the past two weeks that have devastated tens of thousands of hectares of forests, although only three were still burning on Wednesday evening.

Turkey’s northern coast, however, faced a different challenge – flooding after unusually heavy rains that destroyed a bridge and left villages without power. Read more

Forest fires are not limited to the Mediterranean region. California suffered the second largest wildfire in history, which Sunday night covered nearly 500,000 acres (2,000 km²). Read more

The United Nations climate panel released a report on Monday that said greenhouse gases in the atmosphere were high enough to ensure climate change for decades, if not centuries.

ISTANBUL, August 6 (Reuters)Turkey’s central bank is expected to keep its policy rate at 19% next week and wait until the fourth quarter to begin lower-than-expected cuts after inflation peaked in two years, a Reuters poll found on Friday.

With many citing food prices as a worrying factor for inflation, the 18 survey participants predicted that the central bank would keep interest rates stable at its policy committee meeting next Thursday.

However, interest rate expectations beyond were complicated by President Tayyip Erdogan’s comments in an interview on Wednesday: “It is not possible for inflation to rise any further. We will also start to see a drop in rates. of interest. ”

Turkish annual inflation hit a new two-year high of 18.95% in July, just below the central bank’s key interest rate level, increasing pressure on the bank to keep its policy tight.

The data led economists to forecast lower-than-expected rate cuts by the end of the year. According to the 15 respondents who gave forecasts at the end of 2021, the median estimate of the end-of-year interest rate rose to 18% from 17.5% in the previous poll. The forecasts ranged from 17% to 19%.

In July, the central bank raised its year-end inflation forecast to 14.1% from 12.2%, with Governor Sahap Kavcioglu promising to maintain a firm stance until a sustained drop in l inflation is reached.

“The July result and price developments to date confirm our view that the outlook for inflation is more difficult than envisioned by the central bank’s latest forecast path,” Citi said in a note to clients.

“A moderate outlook for capital inflows, a high risk premium and dollarization suggest to us that there is no room for political slippage in the future … restrictive political stance.”

Central bank independence has been a major concern for investors in recent years, as Erdogan, a self-proclaimed interest rate “enemy”, has repeatedly called for low interest rates and is returned to the question this week.

“He (Erdogan) is clearly exerting some pressure for the meeting. I don’t know if that will be enough to make this happen next week, but the market is reconciled with the cuts coming before the end of the year,” he said. said Aberdeen. Kieran Curtis of Standard Investments.

In the poll, 13 respondents said they expected a rate cut in the fourth quarter, while four respondents said they did not expect any rate cuts this year.

The central bank will announce its policy decision on August 14 at 11:00 GMT.

The number of coronavirus cases has increased in Turkey and Vietnam as authorities in Taiwan prepare to ease restrictions following a drop in infections.

New cases of the coronavirus in Turkey topped 10,000 for the first time since mid-May on Friday and reached a level of 11,094, according to data from the Ministry of Health which also showed that 60 people have died from the consequences. of COVID-19.

“If you want tomorrow to be better than today, stick to the measures. Get vaccinated,” Health Minister Fahrettin Koca said on Twitter when posting the data.

Infections remain well below a wave in April-May when new cases of the virus peaked at over 60,000.

They fell to 4,418 on July 4 after a strict lockdown that ended in mid-May.

Most of the last restrictions were lifted this month.

Meanwhile, Vietnam has reported more than 7,000 new cases of the coronavirus daily, a significant record as strict virus prevention protocols are enforced across the country, health officials said.

Vietnam reported 7,307 new cases of coronavirus on Friday, roughly five times the number of cases recorded throughout 2020, according to the health ministry.

Authorities in the Vietnamese capital enforced strict virus prevention protocols on Monday, with all non-essential services shut down.

Citizens are also invited to maintain a minimum distance of two meters in social situations and to only go out in case of absolute necessity.

Ho Chi Minh City, which is also subject to strict transmission prevention and distancing protocols, has become the country’s epicenter of the virus, registering 4,913 cases on Friday.

On Thursday evening, all 689 inmates and staff at Binh Duong drug rehabilitation center, located just hours outside of Ho Chi Minh City, tested positive for the virus according to local media.

Vietnam had been hailed internationally for its response to the pandemic, but after a month without any community transmission, local cases reappeared on April 27 and more than 50,000 have been reported since.

Taiwan will ease its COVID-19 restrictions next week, the government said on Friday, as the rapidly declining number of cases gives authorities the confidence to lower the alert level further.

Taiwan imposed restrictions on gatherings, including closing entertainment venues and limiting restaurants to take-out, in mid-May following an increase in domestic cases after months with no or few cases apart from imported cases.

While some of those restrictions were relaxed this month, the so-called Level 3 alert is in effect and is due to end on July 26.

TOKYO

Heading into the 2020 Summer Olympics in the Japanese capital, Turkish participants will look to add to the country’s total of 91 medals, won by 73 athletes.

The 32nd Summer Olympics, which should have been held last year under normal conditions but have been postponed until this year due to the coronavirus pandemic, are scheduled to start on July 23 and run through August 8 in Tokyo.

Turkey will look to win medals with 108 athletes competing in 18 different branches at the games.

The Tokyo Olympic Games will be the 23rd organization with the participation of Turkey.

Turkey won 39 gold, 25 silver and 27 bronze medals in these organizations.

First medal won in wrestling

Turkey won their first medal in Olympic history in wrestling.

Turkish athletes, unable to win any medals in the first four Olympic Games they competed in, experienced their first medal pride at the 1936 Games in Berlin.

National wrestler Ahmet Kirecci became the first athlete to step onto the podium on behalf of Turkey with bronze.

Wrestling was also the branch which won Turkey its first gold medal in history at these games in 1936.

Wrestler Yasar Erkan achieved another success by winning the gold medal in the 61 kilogram freestyle.

First medal for women in 1992

A Turkish athlete first won an Olympic medal in 1992.

Hulya Senyurt won bronze for Turkey in judo.

The first gold medal for a Turkish athlete was won at the 2004 Summer Olympics.

Nurcan Taylan placed first in weightlifting at the games held in Athens, making history as Turkey’s first female gold medalist.

Most successful branch: Wrestling

Turkey’s most successful branch of the Olympics is wrestling.

The wrestlers won 63 of the 91 medals won by Turkish athletes.

They managed to bring home 29 gold, 18 silver and 16 bronze medals for Turkey.

In addition, Turkish athletes have won 11 medals in weightlifting, seven in taekwondo, five in boxing, three in track and field and two in judo.

Gold medal series from Naim Suleymanoglu, Halil Mutlu

Turkish weightlifters Naim Suleymanoglu and Halil Mutlu, who won three gold medals each, have gone down in history as the most podium-climbed athletes.

Suleymanoglu took his place at the top three consecutive times in Seoul in 1988, Barcelona in 1992 and Atlanta in 1996, writing his name in Turkish and world sports history in letters of gold.

Mutlu repeated Suleymanoglu’s success, winning gold medals at the Games in Atlanta in 1996, Sydney in 2000 and Athens in 2004.

85 medals for men, 6 for women

Turkish female athletes won six Olympic medals, while their male counterparts won 85 of the country’s total.

Turkish female athletes won one gold, two silver and three bronze medals in total.

Nurcan Taylan (weightlifting-gold), Azize Tanrikulu (taekwondo-silver), Nur Tatar (taekwondo-silver-bronze), Hulya Senyurt (judo-bronze) and Hamide Tosun (taekwondo-bronze) received the medals.

Throughout the country’s history, 73 of its athletes have experienced the joy of winning medals on behalf of Turkey at the Olympics.

July 20 – Third time lucky? Istanbul will host the 2023 Champions League final, UEFA confirmed, while Dublin and Bilbao also won the big club finals after dropping out of hosting Euro 2020 matches.

Istanbul has twice been stripped of the rights to organize the Champions League final due to the global health pandemic, with the 2020 and 2021 finals both being moved to Portugal at the eleventh hour. In 2023, however, the flagship match is finally set to take place in the Turkish capital.

Istanbul hosted Liverpool’s victory over AC Milan in 2005. Dubbed the ‘Istanbul mirtacle’, Liverpool were 3-0 down at halftime but came back to tie the game 3-3 full time, then win on penalties.

Istanbul will also host the draws for the 2021 and 2022 Champions League group stages. The Turkish Football Association said: “The selection of Turkey as the host of an exceptional start-to-season event such as the UEFA premiere has boosted confidence in our country in hosting international events.”

Next year’s Champions League final will take place in St. Petersburg. Wembley Stadium in London, the scene of shameful scenes before, during and after the recent Euro 2020 final, will host the 2024 final with that in Munich postponed to 2025.

The Irish capital was rewarded with the final of the Europa League 2024. A year later, Bilbao hosts the match. The two cities had to withdraw from the organization of Euro 2020 because local health authorities did not give the green light to supporters attending matches, a requirement imposed by Europe’s governing body. Bilbao will also host the 2024 Women’s Champions League final.

Seville and Budapest will respectively host the Europa League final in 2022 and 2023.
