/HURRIYET AUGUST 16

ABDULKADIR SELVI As the Trump danger grows, a parallel anti-Trump block is also emerging...As relations with the United States deteriorat­e, relations with the European Union must be developed as soon as possible...In this process, President Erdogan’s official visit to Germany on September 28-29 will be important. The Erdogan-Merkel debate does not only mean the creation of a “coalition” of anti-Trumpian fronts; it may also provide an opportunit­y for the revival of Turkey-EU relations, which has been on pause for a long time. The problems that have been damaging the Turkey-EU relationsh­ip are beginning to be solved, such as the release of the Greek soldiers and the release of Taner Kilic, Amnesty Internatio­nal’s Turkey Branch Honorary President. We cannot fix the EU relationsh­ip without correcting our human rights record. With the release of Osman Kavala and CHP deputy Enis Berberoglu, a new page on relations with the EU can be opened . ... We can return to the days in which our pockets were full of dollars and leave the days of capital running away if Turkey goes back to the EU agenda.
