Russian Foreign Ministry: Relations with Turkey are unlikely to normalize in the “foreseeable future”

31
The anti-Russian position taken by the Turkish authorities “does not allow us to count on the normalization of bilateral relations in the foreseeable future,” according to a review of the RF foreign policy for 2015 g, published by the Russian Foreign Ministry.




“Relations with the Republic of Turkey have been able to promote up to a certain point, maintaining contacts at various levels. At the same time, negative potential gradually increased in them, differences in positions on a number of issues on the bilateral agenda, and regional problems widened, ”the newspaper’s text says Look.

"An Ankara hostile action against Russia (November 24), when the Turkish Air Force shot down the Russian Su-24 bomber over Syrian territory, which was performing tasks as part of the counterterrorist operation in the SAR, led to the actual freezing of bilateral ties," the review notes.

“A set of steps has been taken to protect Russian citizens and ensure their safety: the visa-free regime for travel of Turkish citizens holding public passports has been suspended, a ban has been imposed on the import of certain types of Turkish agricultural products into Russia and on the implementation of charter flights between the two countries, a moratorium on tourist trips to Turkey, ”the agency reminded.

A “number of special restrictive measures in relation to bilateral trade, economic and interregional cooperation, including the participation of subjects of the Russian Federation in the activities of TURKSOY” has also been adopted.

“Contacts on political and military lines are curtailed. The anti-Russian position currently held by the Turkish leadership does not allow us to count on the normalization of bilateral relations in the foreseeable future. ”
stressed in the Foreign Ministry.

    While Erdogan will be at the helm in Turkey, we have nothing to say. When another person stands at the helm in Turkey, then relations will normalize.

      In Turkey, real fascism. And he alone will not resolve until there is someone to support him.

        It’s interesting how in general with Turkey we have had bad relations since the 15th century, so I don’t see anything surprising.

          The fascist Erdogan and his family not only "privatized" the Turkish state for himself - put him personally at his service - but is not going to stop there either. Turkish "kingdom" is not enough for Erdogan! He wants to have an empire! He and his oligarchic army - ISIS militants - climb further to conquer the world: to Russia, Ukraine, Armenia, Azerbaijan. At the same time, the United States only smiles condescendingly at him.

        Nobody is sure, but the other person representing Turkey will not be burdened by the "factor of the origin of the root cause of the deterioration of interstate relations", which will give an opportunity for dialogue.
        He will most likely have to recognize Erdogan's "shoals" and take measures to eliminate them. If not, then the relationship will remain at the same level.
        Under Erdogan, there will definitely not be a dialogue.

        Not only the change of the leader of the country, but also the ruling elites should occur. Only then can we hope that Turkey will come to Russia with a guilty head that the sword cannot cut. In the meantime, it’s too early to talk about. Therefore, the sword must be kept ready, suddenly so come in handy.

          Turkey will never come to Russia with a blameless head. From their - Turkish point of view, we are completely to blame. For them, it looks exactly the same as for Russia, Ukraine and the Donbass. Find 10 differences7

      And even then, they will look for the guilty around them ... And there are such people ... Until the crack is raked, the concept of conscience will not grow ...

        there are people far away at all .... I ask the peasant at work, did I see the armature? he asks - What is this? recently asked what is happening in Ukraine? I’m telling him that you’ve been civilian there for 2 years and he’s not even been aware of Syria and there are a lot of such people. A person eats, sleeps, thumps and works cleanly. What happens in the country where the country goes .... generally zero.

    Anti-Russian position taken by Turkish authorities

    Plus, Erdogan's ambitions, which spill over the edge, plus the tacit support of the United States, plus the no longer hidden help of ISIS - what kind of improvement of relations can we talk about. Even if the Turkish leadership changes, this will not mean an instant restoration of normal relations. What this newly minted "pasha" has done will take many years to correct the situation.

    Turkey has always been NATO's southern outpost. It has been an unofficial member of it for a long time. See how boldly they act, because they know that no one will attack.

    Turkey has been a member of the NATO bloc since 1952, being its southern flank. Caribbean crisis was caused by the deployment
    US medium-range missiles in Turkey. If Erdogan "leaves", his place will most likely be taken by Ahmet Davutoglu, which will be even worse for Russia.

    We need to talk more about Turkey’s ties with terrorists. Open people's eyes through public dialogue. About how Turkey supports the IG, sells relics and, worst of all, even people. Militants use Turkey as a gathering place, treatment, and also for the sale of oil. The Turks are not interested in ending the war, even considering the huge flow of refugees ...

    Russian Foreign Ministry: Relations with Turkey are unlikely to normalize in the “foreseeable future”
    And this is wonderful because the restoration of normal relations will mean a return to Turkey's subversive activities in Russia. At the same time, it is possible, without regard to "friendship", to clean up the results of the "friends" activities.

    Even historically, the interests of Russia and Turkey were always opposite. The concessions from Russia on contacts with Turkey were not appreciated by the Turkish side.
    And this was an impressive support of the Turkish economy from the Russian Federation: tourism, deliveries of agricultural products, textiles, the activities of construction companies, especially in Moscow, are the enormous money Turkey made in Russia. From their activities in the country, unemployment only increased, the amount of taxes received into the treasury decreased: aren’t Russians able to sew shirts, grow tomatoes, and build? The use of foreign labor is beneficial only to owners of construction projects — they do not pay taxes on the salary: income tax, social tax, and this is 43% of the federal wage bill.
    Maybe, all the same, the Russian Federation will understand that economic concessions to other countries do not solve political problems, but create economic problems in Russia itself.

    What's the use. Regular flights are made, Ukrainian travel agencies are recruiting groups, headless people are heading to Turkey to rest on their own. In the future, Erdogan has a bunch of "hostages", which unties his hands and weakens our propaganda. And what happens, who will rescue this screeching horde from Antalya? That's not how things are done! The ban must be total and those who violate it must be punished.

    Honestly, the Russian Federation at all times had problems with this Turkish woman. Do we need friendship with them? I do not know. They seemed to be friends, but these Basmachi shot down the plane. How can you trust them? No. So I don't think it's worth making friends with them. So. Observe from afar and, just in case, keep the "checker" bald. What can you do.
