‘Turkey will never rule Arab World’

Source: RT via Wasim Sr.

A non-Arab state, like Turkey, can’t rule the Arab World, Egypt’s interim foreign minister, Nabil Fahmy, told RT Arabic in an exclusive interview, calling Ankara’s ambitions to restore the Ottoman Empire groundless due to failed relations with neighbors.

Egypt’s interim government has only nine months ahead of it, but during that time Egypt will review its relations with all the countries on the world map, Fahmy said.

The minister stressed that all the attempts by the US and the EU to bring the army-backed government and the pro-Morsi Muslim Brotherhood movement to the negotiations table have failed, because the sides weren’t ready to reach an agreement and lacked mutual trust.

  1. In today’s world one does not have to ‘rule’ a region in order to have influence. Japan does not rule South-East Asia, but due to their economic clout it almost ruled it (now the Chinese are taking over, but, again, not to ‘rule’ in the old sense, but with economic clout). Turkey could do the same in the Middle East, if they are clever. …

  2. You are right. However might be it is distraction tactics to divert the main opposing attention of KSA from Turkey. After all it is a political world where every th9ings is considered fair.
