Turkey's new Foreign Minister

By Dr Marc Herzog.

New FPC Associate Mark Herzog gives an FPC briefing on the influence of Turkey's new Foreign Minister, Professor Ahmet Davutoðlu. The briefing looks at his influence behind the scenes in developing a new perspective for Turkish foreign policy based on his idea of Strategic Depth. Herzog examines Turkey's increasingly active role in the Middle East in addition to the development of long standing ties to Central Asia that he believes will help rather than hinder Turkey's long-term relationship with the EU.
