Erdogan made all the conclusions after the failed coup d’état. He perfectly understands that behind the Gülen sect, who are responsible for this coup, is the US, and there is not the slightest doubt. Accordingly, during this year Erdogan very carefully restructured his policy towards strengthening the sovereignty of Turkey, but under new conditions.
The organizer will pay a huge price for this assassination. Our strongest and loudest response to this crime will be the continuation of the Russian-Turkish strategic alliance, and the acceleration of the Turkish withdrawal from NATO, and creating a new Eurasian alliance. That is the only reasonable and symmetric answer, because our enemies – the globalists – fear this moment more then anything else. Nothing will stop our progress in the creation of a multipolar and democratic world order.
Syrian sources reasonably suggest that the murder of the Russian Ambassador in Ankara, may be the result of problems with the withdrawal of foreign military advisers from Aleppo who are still hiding in the city and in this case, and suggest that the murder of Charles can be found among the secret services of the citizens of those States, military advisers which are still in Aleppo.
So a regular zealot with his “Allah Akbar”, but behind him is some kind of intelligence Agency, which used him to achieve more far-reaching goals. That it could be MIT is not particularly hard to believe, because while there are benefits from this murder for Erdogan, the cost is very serious – if he wanted to annoy Russia, he could simply give the go-ahead to the FSA militants to come to the rescue of Aleppo, but not stupidly kill the Ambassador, which in no way will strategically improve the position in Northern Syria. Although we can not exclude that this came from the cadres in the MIT and the interior Ministry that remained after the aborted coup. The young officer was a fanatic, the perfect murder weapon, but who has sent this hand (unless it’s an unlikely example of a loner), that is the question. In my opinion the main suspects are Turkoman groups operating in Northern Syria (by the way they are very closely connected with the CIA), and the intelligence service of a foreign state.
Turkey has formally requested the extradition of US-based cleric Fethullah Gulen, the US State Department said Tuesday, but the request was not related to the attempted coup, which he is accused of orchestrating.
“We can confirm now that Turkey has requested the extradition of Gulen,” State Department spokesman Mark Toner told a briefing.
There is a new realignment in the Middle East but its shape are not yet final or clear. Al-Arabiyya (the news station of Muhammad bin Salman) hosted Gulen, and the adviser of Erdogan has described that as “hosting of a terrorist”. Turkey’s new relations with Iran and Russia may signal a shift but I can’t see how Turkey can for many reasons abruptly shift course on Syria.
Two independent sources told EurActiv.com that the US has started transferring nuclear weapons stationed in Turkey to Romania, against the background of worsening relations between Washington and Ankara.
