Erdogan: Turkey has become an exporter of helicopters

Erdogan: Turkey has become an exporter of helicopters Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Wednesday that his country has become an exporter of helicopters, stressing that his government "will never back down from making Turkey one of the world's 10 largest economies."  Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Wednesday that his country has become an exporter of helicopters.  This came in a speech on Wednesday, before the AK Party deputies in the capital, Ankara, in which he said: "A Turkish delegation headed to the Philippines yesterday to deliver Atak helicopters, and now we have become an exporter of helicopters."  In another context, he reiterated that his government "will never back down from the decision to make Turkey one of the top 10 economies in the world," adding: "We will protect our citizens from inflation and we will move forward towards our desired economic goals."  He continued, "We are now moving to a new stage, and our goal is to increase the purchasing power of our people more than before, after it decreased due to the increase in prices and inflation."  He pointed out that the month of Ramadan in the last two years came in light of the Corona pandemic, while the current Ramadan witnessed a number of political, economic and humanitarian crises, resulting from the Russian-Ukrainian war.  He pointed out that Turkey witnessed, late last year, large fluctuations in exchange rates, and that his government succeeded in reducing and stabilizing foreign exchange rates significantly, thanks to the measures it took on December 20 last.  He also explained that the rise in prices in general began around the world with the Corona pandemic, and that the impact of this on Turkey was great due to the high exchange rates as well, pointing out that the Russian-Ukrainian war contributed to increasing volatility in global markets.  He stressed that Turkey has an economy integrated with the global economy, especially with regional developments in the region, noting that every development at the international level affects his country, "in addition to the presence of opportunists thirsty for money."  He pointed out that these factors combined make the Turkish citizen face unusually high prices, explaining that many European and developed countries are also facing high inflation rates and large price increases.  He added that the significant increase in the minimum wage at the beginning of this year contributed to alleviating the burden of price increases, but the outbreak of the Russian-Ukrainian war led to a rise in energy and food prices at the global level once again.  In a separate context, he reported that a Turkish delegation headed to the Philippines yesterday to deliver the Atak helicopters, stressing that his country has become one of the helicopter exporters.  He stressed the success of the security forces and the Turkish army in all operations against terrorism inside and outside the country's borders, noting that the Turkish defense industries played a major role in these operations and became the focus of the world's attention.

The “chemistry” of the Brotherhood - Al-Rifai interacted before and after the “Ramadan Iftar”: the Jordanian Islamist asks for “wed the palace”

Just days before he accepted the invitation of the Jordanian Islamic Movement for a “political” breakfast par excellence, President Samir Al-Rifai was renewing, in discussion with Al-Quds Al-Arabi, his call for the necessity of working to contain any tension in the national scene.

He speaks comfortably about the Islamists and the productivity of the “communication” he maintains with them since they professionally and efficiently joined him in the Royal Committee to Modernize the Political System.

On the other hand, and before the attention-grabbing breakfast on Tuesday, leaders in the Islamic Action Front asked Secretary-General Sheikh Murad Adaileh, “Do you continue to communicate with Al-Rifai? Do you invest in the chemistry that took place?” The latter hinted that the desire to connect is productive and present, indicating that the party is interested in communicating with all national figures and may request a new meeting to discuss with Al-Rifai.

Practically everyone knows that the Islamic Action Front, after a behind-the-curtain dialogue with Al-Rifai, participated with three members within the Royal Committee for the Modernization of the Political System, which the latter chaired.

The Islamic Action Front Party, after a dialogue behind the curtain with Al-Rifai, participated with three members within the Royal Committee for the Modernization of the Political System, which was chaired by the latter.

Everyone also knows that Al-Rifai publicly praised at least twice the “technical, responsible and patriotic side” in the participation of the “ Muslim Brotherhood trio ” in the meetings, expressing a pleasant surprise in the context where “commitment and attendance at meetings and interventions are not arbitrary” and where the “activity and seriousness” demonstrated by the trio Dima Tahboub and Hamza Mansour Wael Al-Sakka and all of them are from the basic faces of the Islamic movement.

This “personal-political chemistry” between the Islamists and Al-Rifai has been a milestone for the past ten months, although it is not yet concerned with more than “exchange of advice” and does not make a difference in terms of the outstanding issues between the state and the Muslim Brotherhood, such as arrests, election interference and the teachers’ union.

But what is new is that the two parties are now trying to “promote” that chemistry. The Muslim Brotherhood, at their iftar banquet yesterday, intended to celebrate the presence of Al-Rifai, and the latter, of course, meant to attend politically and gained the spotlight that practically makes him “the most senior official in the Jordanian state” attend a “social event” organized by the Muslim Brotherhood party, regardless of The exchange of mistrust and skepticism between the official positions and the positions of the group.

There is “something that can be agreed upon with the Islamists.” This is practically Al-Rifai's impression.

This is contrasted by the conviction of leaders in the Islamic movement that “there is something that can be agreed upon with the state, specifically the royal palace.” This is at least the conviction of an alternative scenario to “escalation and aggravation” proposed by a special cell of the group led by the veteran Sheikh Hamza Mansour, which moved lightly and away from the spotlight to open “channels.” A recent dialogue with “national and semi-official figures” or those close to the Palace Foundation.

Therefore, in the aforementioned context, the Muslim Brotherhood’s celebration of Al-Rifai’s attendance for their Ramadan banquet for the first time can be read from the angle of the desire to provide alternative havens for the security and political friction with the government.

Chemistry here is certainly “not personal.” Al-Rifai does not move, maneuver, initiate or strive based on personal motives or ambitions, and his orphan criterion publicly and privately is “royal vision and direction.”

His conviction can be felt that “completion of the process of modernizing the political system” means nationally and in many parts, not the inevitability of the Islamist movement in reality and the map and structure of society and the state, but also the inevitability of speaking and agreeing with them.

Therefore, it can be said that a political breakfast is more than just communication and courtesy.

Much may follow later, especially since the Islamic movement in any case and despite its position on the recent “constitutional amendments” is still in the context of praising “most of the recommendations of modernization,” as Al-Adayleh said several times, thus granting them the legitimacy of political participation.

In any case, what the Islamists want is more generally clear now, and away from the stagnation of bureaucratic and governmental considerations, which is “general appeasement” and staying within the contexts of “the state” and launching a state of “national dialogue” that extends to a dialogue with the institution of the royal palace.

It does not appear that Al-Rifai is in the opposite direction from what the Islamists want if they “discount some conditions” and work on the chemistry of fusion more.

Did the palace gate guards respond to senior politicians and the king's notables?

A premature question now but "chemistry" is developing.
