Lecturer, University of Maltepe, an expert on international
relations, Professor, Dr. Hasan Unal said that Turkey must recognize
Crimea as Russian territory, and Russia — the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus.
Writes Aydinlik Gazetesi, the expert made suggestions aimed at
ensuring stability in the region and further development of relations between Russia and
Turkey. Unal stressed that the unstable situation in the region are the United States, and
it is very important to exclude Washington from the settlement process of existing
problems. Unal also noted that in the world and the region, which is in fact
among the Turkey, the balances are changing.

“I would place President Erdogan invited Putin to allow the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus to open a representative office in
Moscow. The Ministry of foreign Affairs has sent invitations to some
event. However, would suggest that Russia started flights to
The Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, instead of “Turkish airlines” would
flights to the Crimea. In the next stage after that, Turkey would recognize the Russian Crimea
territory, and Russia officially recognized the Turkish Republic of Northern
Cyprus,” said Unal.

Unal added that the pressing need for Turkey was the establishment of a major naval base in Cyprus.

“In the Eastern Mediterranean is gradually increasing voltage.
Turkey cannot remain a bystander. Turkey needs to create
important naval base for deterrence. The security of this base
must be secured with s-400. In Syria is a major Russian
sea base. Russia and Turkey share the same interests. They can act in
The Eastern Mediterranean. If Russia recognizes the Turkish Republic of Northern
Cyprus, with Russia also it will be possible to conclude a new military agreement,”
the expert added.
