Moğolistan’ın Dış Politikasında Denge Arayışı - Gülperi Güngör - 20.07.2020
Moğolistan 1990’lardan bu yana bağımsız bir dış politika gütme ve çok taraflı ilişkiler yürütme hedefini benimsemiştir. Ancak iki büyük güç Çin ve Rusya tarafından çevrelenmiş, denize kıyısı olmayan bir kara ülkesi Moğolistan’ın coğrafi konumu itibari ile sınırlı seçenekleri bulunmaktadır. Üçüncü komşu kavramı ile dış politikasında Rusya ve Çin dışındaki ülkeler ile ilişkiler ve iş birliği geliştirmeyi hedefleyen Moğolistan’ın karşısına bazı zorluklar çıkmaktadır...

1934 PACT OF BALKAN ENTENTE: THE PRECURSOR OF BALKAN/SOUTHEAST EUROPE COOPERATION - Teoman Ertuğrul TULUN - 06.08.2020
In our recent analysis titled “Turkey Assumed the Chairmanship-In-Office  of the South East Europe Cooperation Process (SEECP)”, we referred to  the 1934 Pact of Balkan Entente (shortly 1934 Balkan Pact) and described  this treaty as the precursor of the South-East Europe Cooperation  Process.  In this context, we emphasized that the Balkans is the core of the  “South East Europe” sub-region of Europe. Geographically, this subregion  is fundamentally and primarily coterminous with the Balkan Peninsula,  hence, is historically known as the Balkans. Historian Maria Todorova,  who is well known for her work on the history of the Balkans, in titled  book “Imagining the Balkans”, elaborately elucidates the Turkish roots  of the toponym “Balkans” and explains  how the terms of  “Southeastern  Europe” and “Balkans” are used interchangeably.

A GREEK PONTUS TV DRAMA MAKES MOCKERY OF HISTORICAL FACTS -Teoman Ertugrul Tulun - 31.08.2020
A Greek diaspora online media based in Australia has recently published a  news item regarding the Greek dramatic TV series named “To Kokkino  Potami” (Red River) which is said to have been broadcasted in Greek Open  TV channel from October 6, 2019 to July 13, 2020 in 32 episodes.  According to mentioned news item, the said historic romantic drama  series is “based on the homonymous novel by Haris Tsirkinidis detailing  the real events surrounding the Greek Pontian genocide”, and  “follows  the real-life story of a young couple from Pontos, a then  Greek-populated region on the southern coast of the Black Sea during the  19th century.” As per the TV series’ director Manousos Manousakis, “One  of the main aims of this series, is for the Greek Pontian genocide to  be globally recognized and not just for our satisfaction and for the  feeling of fairness as Greeks, but because a crime that is not punished  historically keeps on getting repeated”...

Peace Treaty Of Lausanne And The End To Armenian Aspirations – Teoman Ertuğrul TULUN - 22.07.2016
July 24th is the 93rd anniversary of the Peace  Treaty of Lausanne (in this text, the “Lausanne Peace Treaty” will be  referred to as the “Lausanne Treaty”). The Lausanne Treaty is an  important international contract that was negotiated, signed, and  ratified by almost all important participants of the First World War. It  is not only a crucial treaty due to the identity of the participating  countries, but it is also crucial due to the scope of subject areas it  covers. It is a treaty that covers political, military, economic, and  humanitarian issues that appertains to the Ottoman Empire and Eastern  Front of the First World War. It  would not be farfetched to argue that it does not only effect the  signatory countries, but has wide ranging ramifications for third  countries. Any demands for revision, alteration, or termination of such a  treaty must be met with utmost skepticism. This is especially valid for  demands that are not based on any principle and rules mentioned in the  treaty itself or that are contrary to the general principles of  international law. Thus, any subjectively motivated claims regarding  this treaty, including those of the Republic of Armenia and the Armenian  diaspora rooted in the events of 1915 must be reviewed and evaluated on  the basis of the above mentioned context.
