YEREVAN. – Turkey is not satisfied with the role of being a regional power, it desires to be the one globally, expert from Armenia-based Noravank center Aristakes Simavoryan told the journalists on Tuesday.
According to him, Ankara’s aspiration is linked to Turkish FM Ahmet Davutoglu’s statements back in 2004-2010 that Turkey should not be simply a cultural bridge in the region, but also a global super power.
“Desire is based on the economic growth which is accompanied by 7-12% unemployment rate in cities, as well as the nuclear program. Another question is whether Turkey will be able to realize its desire in the near future. As a matter of fact, it damaged its image when trying and failing to be engaged in the Arab processes,” the expert concluded.
