FM says Turkey never implements 'wait-see policy'

 

The Turkish minister of foreign affairs said on Wednesday that Turkey would never implement a "wait and see" policy about the developments taking place around it.

Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu replied to several opposition deputies' criticisms about Turkey's foreign policy during a session at the Turkish parliament.

Upon a remark claiming that Turkey had been carrying out an unrealistic foreign policy in the recent term, Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said Turkey had a certain vision, and continued, "those who cannot dream about a world in their minds cannot put their thoughts into practice either".

Davutoglu said Turkey had carried out a secret diplomacy traffic between Syria and Israel during the last two years and achieved what other countries could not have done so far.

Commenting on the uranium swap deal with Iran as well, Davutoglu said the proposal on such matter came from the head of the International Atomic Energy Agency, adding Turkey had displayed efforts to solve the issue for 10 months, and finally, a text had been created for the first time.

"We could have said: Let's leave them alone and watch them fight, let sanctions be imposed. We did not do that and we will never do such a thing. We will never implement a 'wait & see' policy about the developments taking place around us," Davutoglu said.

Davutoglu also noted that all the related parties desired Turkey's participation in the process, adding Turkey would decide whether or not it would play a role in such process from now on.

"The Tehran agreement will take its place in history as the document signed by Iran for the first time. No matter they accept it or not, we made this agreement by holding talks with all the parties," Davutoglu said.
