2005 – Blue Stream Pipeline2005-11-01
Die „Blue-Stream“-Pipeline ging Anfang 2003 in Betrieb. Zuvor war die Türkei ausschließlich über die Transitleitungen über die Ukraine und Südosteuropa mit russischem Gas beliefert worden. Im November 2005 wurde die Leitung von den führenden Politikern der drei beteiligten Länder auch offiziell eröffnet.

They attempted to seize control of several key places in Ankara, Istanbul, and elsewhere, but failed to do so after forces loyal to the state defeated them. The Council cited an erosion of secularism, elimination of democratic rule, disregard for human rights, and Turkey’s loss of credibility in the international arena as reasons for the coup.
The government accused the coup leaders of being linked to the Gülen movement, which is designated as a terrorist organization by the Republic of Turkey and led by Fethullah Gülen, a Turkish businessman and cleric who lives in Pennsylvania.

Erdogan colaborates with Putin2016-10-10
- Wikipedia: Turkish Stream
Die türkische Entscheidung, die Gaspipelines über die Türkei zum europäischen Festland zu erlauben, ist eine Entscheidung gegen das Ziel der GeldMonarchie, die EU und andere europäische Länder von Gaslieferungen aus Russland abzuschneiden.
Ein anderes strategisches Ziel der GeldMonarchie ist es dabei, jede Art von Vereinigung russischer und europäischer Interessen zu verhindern. Wenn die wirtschaftliche und militärische Macht beider sich zusammentun, dann könnten sie auf lange Sicht, die USA übertreffen.
TurkStream Pipeline Russia-Turkey2016-10-10
The first direct gas pipeline between Russia and Turkey was the Blue Stream, commissioned in 2005. In 2009, Putin proposed a Blue Stream II line parallel to Blue Stream under the Black Sea. The Blue Stream II project did not carry through and the South Stream project took the lead, until it was abandoned in 2014.
In November 2015, after the Russian Sukhoi Su-24 shootdown, Russia’s Economic Development Minister stated that the TurkStream gas pipeline project falls under the restrictive measures against Turkey. Talks on the project were unilaterally suspended by the Russian side.
On 5 December 2015, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said Turkey terminated the TurkStream project, on the grounds of Russian “non-compliance” with Turkish demands surrounding the project. In late July 2016, following a reconciliation meeting in Moscow, both sides brought the project back on table.
On 10 October 2016, Russia and Turkey officially signed the intergovernmental agreement in Istanbul, confirming commitment in the execution of the project.

- Express.co.uk: World War 3: Turkey’s Erdogan calls for ‘ARMY of Islam’ to ATTACK Israel on all sides
TURKEY’S President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) have announced they want to create an “army of Islam” to wage war against Israel, it has been revealed.
Less than a month ago the Turkish state’s mouthpiece the daily Yeni Şafak ran an article for Erdogan titled “A call for urgent action” and on the newspaper’s website headlined “What if an army of Islam formed against Israel?”
It called for the 57 member states of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) to form a joint army to simultaneously attack Israel from all sides.
The article said: “If the member states of the OIC unite militarily, they will form the world’s largest and most comprehensive army.
“The number of active soldiers would be at least 5,206,100, while the defence budget would reach approximately $175billion (£124billion).”
This was accompanied by an interactive map providing formation of military forces for a joint Muslim attack on Israel.

Recep Tayyip Erdoğan tried to restore confidence in the Turkish lira after it plunged by more than 20% against the dollar on Friday. The sudden drop came when Donald Trump announced on Twitter he was doubling US import tariffs on Turkish steel and aluminium. The Turkish president called on Turks to exchange dollars, euros and gold for Turkish lira. He said this would be Turkey’s response ‘to those who wage economic war against us’. The lira has been under sustained pressure on foreign exchanges, dropping by almost 50% against the dollar in the past 12 months.

The slide comes as Turkey and its President Recep Tayyip Erdogan have thus far failed to stem a dramatic decline in its currency, which came to a head on Friday, and accelerated, as President Donald Trump tweeted that he had authorized the doubling of steel and aluminum tariffs on the country.
Turkey’s lira was trading at fresh all-time low against the U.S. dollar, after shedding some 14% of its value at the end of last week. The Turkish lira USDTRY, -7.4892% is down more than 6% on Monday after Turkey’s central bank pledged to provide “all the liquidity the banks need” in a statement Monday.
It also said banks would be able to borrow currency deposits from the central bank at a one-month maturity and one-week maturities. Analysts said Turkey’s reluctance to raise interest rates stood out.

On Tuesday, Erdogan said his government would boycott electronic goods from the United States in response to Washington imposing tariffs on Turkish imports. He pledged Turkey would work to produce and export more goods, as well as provide employment opportunities to Turkish citizens

Turkey’s beleagured currency has bounced back from record lows after Qatar pledged to shore up the banking sector’s shaky finances with loans worth $15bn (£11.8bn).
A week after a diplomatic spat with the US sent the lira into a tailspin, the agreement with Qatar was calculated to help Turkey avoid having to ask the International Monetary Fund for emergency funding.
Officials in Ankara said the Qatari money would be “channeled into Turkey’s financial markets and banks”, with the implication that the investment would be enough to head off a banking collapse.
Property buyers dive in as Turkey’s lira plunges2018-08-18 0:00
- The Guardian: Property buyers dive in as Turkey’s lira plunges
Property investors have been flocking to Turkey this week in a bid to grab houses and apartments that have in some cases dropped from £55,000 a month ago to below £37,000 now.
The highly-publicised collapse in the Turkish lira may have been a disaster for the country – and any British expat who bought there in the last two years – but it has been described as a bonanza for those holding US dollars, pounds or euros.
In August 2017, a pound bought 4.5 lira, before it started a steady decline over the year, slumping to 6.3 lira by mid-June. But at the height of the currency’s troubles last week, it was trading at just under 9 lira to the pound, meaning property had effectively almost halved in price in hard currency terms compared with a year ago.

Trump disputes CIA findings that MBS ordered Khashoggi murder2018-11-22
US president says the agency had ‘feelings’ but did not firmly place blame on Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.
US President Donald Trump has contradicted the CIA’s reported assessment that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman ordered the killing of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi, insisting that the agency had “feelings” but did not firmly place the blame for the death.
Last week, senior intelligence officials from the US spy agency said that such an operation would have needed the approval of Prince Mohammed, also known as MBS, the kingdom’s de facto leader.
Trump defended Saudi Arabia on Thursday, saying MBS and King Salman said they did not commit “this atrocity”.
“I hate the crime, I hate the cover-up. I will tell you this: The crown prince hates it more than I do, and they have vehemently denied it.”
No US F-35 equipment shipment to Turkey over Russia’s S-400: Report2019-04-01
The United States has stopped shipment of equipment for F-35 equipment to Turkey over the country’s defensive cooperation with Russia, a report says.
Reuters cited two unnamed sources in a report Monday, suggesting that the Turkish officials had been notified about the matter by their American counterparts “in recent days.”
“The next shipment of training equipment, and all subsequent shipments of F-35 related material, have been canceled,” read the report citing sources speaking on condition of anonymity.
Turkey has said the S-400 Triumph air defense system will be delivered by Russia despite the US pressure on the NATO member.
“The contract with Russia on S-400s remains in force and these defensive systems will be delivered to Turkey. Now talks on this issue are underway,” Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said, according to Russian media.
According to multiple reports, the production has been estimated to be completed in May for subsequent delivery to Turkey in July.
“We are not going to sell S-400s to third countries. We do not need this as we are acquiring them for our own needs,” Cavusoglu reportedly said.
Turkish foreign minister is scheduled to take part in a summit for the North Atlantic Treaty Organization in the US this week.
The row over the F-35 and the S-400 is the latest in a series of diplomatic disputes between Ankara and Washington.
