In July, Turkish President Recep Erdogan approved construction of new Istanbul Canal, which will be connecting the Black Sea with the Sea of Marmara. The canal will become the biggest infrastructure project of Turkey. Experts predict a serious geopolitical crisis as it might downgrade of the Montreux Convention.
International and Turkish-Russian relations expert Dr. Kerim Has will become a guest of the "Expert's Opinion" show this week. The discussion topic is consequences of the Istanbul Canal construction for Turkey and its neighbors.
Does this project downgrade importance of the Montreux Convention? Is Turkish business ready for such massive investments? What is the future of the Russian-Turkish relations?
This and much more will be discussed with the expert on Thursday, August 5, at 6:00 pm (Moscow Standard Time).
The event will be available to watch online on the Facebook page of the Gorchakov Fund.
