Riots in Turkey

Recommended Posts

The Sage   

As we all know Turkey has emerged to be a close partner for Somalis across the horn with it's generous aid, strong political backing and lucrative investment deals. This relationship has mainly been forged as a result of the current Turkish government's moderate Islamist policies that call for greater reach to the Muslim world. It's GDP and family income has tripled, since the AKP and Erdogan has come to power. It has become an economic powerhouse and true leader in the world stage and it's effects have been felt throughout the region.


This progress and development seems to be at stake with the recent riots and protests by leftists, kemalists, and malcontents. If Erdogan resigns or is forced out, or worse if armed clashes break out in Turkey it could have a significant impact on the horn's future and the middle east/europe. What does SOL have to say?
