Halil M. Karaveli quoted in Swedish National Radio on the Atatürk Airport attack in Istanbul.
“Attentatet liknar terrordådet på flygplatsen i Bryssel i mars, som Islamiska Staten tog på sig. Och kanske har den turkiska ledningen underrättelseinformation som pekar ut IS som ansvarigt, men den turkiska staten har också ett intresse av att visa att den egna politiken mot kurderna inte resulterar i terrorattentat.”
Svante Cornell on Turkey Post the Airport Attach
“Turkey inserted itself in the affairs of the Middle East, threw its support behind non-governmental armed groups, taking sides in various conflicts without seriously considering the consequences,” Cornell said. “If you use these kinds of groups they have a tendency to turn back and bite and Turkey is now paying the price for its decisions.”
Halil Karaveli Quoted in SVT Article on the Istanbul Bombing
“Vad som är alldeles uppenbart är att den turkiska regimen har ett direkt ansvar: det är ytterst dess politik som har skapat en grogrund för terrorism”.
