PM Erdogan: “Pragmatic Depth” Foreign Policy

Turkey should change its mentality to become an influential country in its region and throughout the entire world, PM Erdogan said February 3, 2010 as he outlined his vision of “pragmatic depth” in foreign policy. Erdoğan’s path for a more stable and beneficial foreign policy involves removing all anti-democratic tendencies from Turkey, including rumors about coups and actual interventions. “The era of coups is over in Turkey. What will in fact prevent the country from these sorts of interventions, however, is the current democratic platform on which we can freely discuss developments,” he said.

 PM Erdogan is struggling to keep his “democratic initiative” agenda moving forward in the face of stiff criticism from the opposition parties.
