Mavi Marmara olaylarının yıldönümü haftasına girerken Türkiye-İsrail ilişkilerinin en sarsıntılı döneminde İsrail’de görev yapmış Emekli Büyükelçi Oğuz Çelikkol’un yayınladığı ‘One Minute’ten Mavi Marmara’ya Türkiye-İsrail Çatışması’ isimli kitap, gün yüzüne çıkardığı perde arkası detaylar ve tam da aynı hafta Mavi Marmara davasından İsrailli askerler hakkında tutuklama kararı çıkması ile gündeme damga vurdu.
Both Turkey and Armenia would benefit economically and politically from prospective regional cooperation in the South Caucasus. Without normalization of official relations between these two important actors and their willingness to engage in the process, however, comprehensive regional cooperation cannot be achieved. The upcoming commemoration of the 1915 tragedy constitutes a new window of opportunity for both countries to find common ground for rapprochement by overcoming historical issues. In order to achieve an inclusive solution to the deadlock in Turkish-Armenian relations, efforts at regional cooperation should be undertaken at the civil society level and in the media; and at the political level simultaneously.
