The Sunday elections were Erdogan’s victory and Turkey’s defeat, Ruben Safrastyan, Director of the Oriental Studies Institute of the Armenian National Academy of Sciences, told reporters today.
According to him, Turkey has found itself in a hard situation. “Turkey’s isolation is obvious,” Safrastyan said. “Turkey has problems with almost all countries of the region – Egypt, Iraq, Iran, Israel, Syria.”
Ruben Safrstyan rules out the perspective of Turkey becoming the country with the hugest weight in a region uniting the Islamic world.
“The internal and external discrepancies will further deepen as a result of the elections,” Safrastyan said.
