Travel / Surge In COVID-19 Cases Pushes Istanbul To High-risk Category by sloye5(m): 2:07pm On Mar 17, 2021
A resurgence of COVID-19 cases has recently been observed in Istanbul, marking the metropolis with more than 16 million population as a red province with very high-risk.

Health Minister Fahrettin Koca said Istanbul, the Black Sea province of Samsun, the southeastern province of Kilis and the northwestern provinces of Balıkesir and Yalova provinces over the last week experienced the highest rises in the number of cases for a population of 100,000 each.

Those with more than 100 infections per 100,000 people are categorized as red provinces and are at very high risk, prompting authorities to impose more restrictive measures to stem the spread of COVID-19, according to Turkey’s normalization scheme.

Koca also added that the provinces of Sakarya, Ordu, Amasya, Rize, and Burdur recorded the highest drops in infections per 100,000 people.

Earlier on March 16, Koca shared the map for March 6-12 on his social media accounts and warned that a “normalization” could only be possible if measures are followed.

The map, which assesses the risk with the average number of cases per 100,000 people, shows a rise in cases with provinces already branded risky.

In Istanbul, weekly cases increased 60 percent compared to the previous week, while the rise was 25 percent for Ankara and 18 percent in İzmir, the nation’s third-largest province, according to the figures.

As of March 17, only nine provinces had the “blue” status, which means low risk, while 25 provinces are “red,” or meaning at very high risk.

The majority of very high-risk provinces are in the Black Sea and Marmara regions, while 21 among 30 big cities were in either the high or very high-risk groups.

Travel / Turkey To Impose Curfew, Weekend Lockdown Against Coronavirus by sloye5(m): 11:45am On Dec 05, 2020
ISTANBUL (Reuters) - Turkey will impose a weekday curfew and a full lockdown at weekends to combat the spread of the coronavirus, President Tayyip Erdogan said on Monday, after new cases and deaths hit record highs.

Citizens will not be allowed to leave home between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. on weekdays or at all at weekends, Erdogan said.

Some sectors, including supply chains and production, will be exempt from the measures which will begin on Tuesday, he said.

"We are taking steps carefully not to turn the health crisis into a full-blown economic and social crisis," Erdogan said.

He said transmission in homes had increased and asked people to stop hosting guests until the risk decreases.

Turkey recorded 31,219 cases on Monday, data from the Health Ministry showed, placing it fourth globally as the highest number of daily new cases. It remains behind the United States, India and Brazil - all countries with far larger populations than Turkey.

For four months, Turkey reported symptomatic cases, but since Wednesday it has reported all cases. Historical data for the total number of cases is not yet available.

The death toll has hit record highs for eight consecutive days, with 188 recorded in the last 24 hours on Monday, data showed, raising the total since the beginning of the pandemic to 13,746.

Turkey has signed a contract to buy 50 million doses of COVID-19 vaccine from China's Sinovac Biotech Ltd.

Erdogan said Turkey would begin vaccinations in December and prioritise health workers.

Travel / Istanbul Recovers After Heavy Rains(photos) by sloye5(m): 9:22am On Aug 19, 2019
Istanbul Mayor Ekrem İmamoğlu said on Aug. 18 that the municipality will scrutinize the city’s infrastructure after flash floods killed one person the previous day.

“This [the flooding] was an inter-warning…I have talked with our general secretary [of the municipality]. I have said, ‘Undertake a work immediately regarding the infrastructure by summoning all the relevant units [of the municipality],” İmamoğlu told reporters at the Istanbul municipality’s Disaster Coordination Center (AKOM).

“Our instruction will be as follows: A work will be undertaken to determine the areas that were at risk at such disasters in Istanbul’s history during the last 20-25 years. By considering all of these [areas], middle-term and long-term precautions will be listed. We’ll inform the press regarding this issue,” İmamoğlu said.

Heavy rains in Istanbul on Aug. 18 flooded several neighborhoods, while officials said one person was found dead in the city.

Rain started early in the day in parts of the city and picked up pace around noon.

The pedestrian underpass in Eminönü Square was filled with floodwaters as the shops inside suffered great damage. Video footage shows shopkeepers trying to save their merchandise from the nearly waist-deep floodwaters.

Travel / Magnitude 6 Quake Shakes Western Turkey; More Than 20 Hurt by sloye5(m): 11:46am On Aug 10, 2019
A total of 420 tents have been pitched for earthquake survivors by aid agencies in Turkey’s southwestern Denizli province.

The Disaster and Emergency Management Authority (AFAD), which put the magnitude of the Aug. 8 quake at 6.0, said its epicenter was the Bozkurt district. A previous earthquake with a magnitude of 4.2 was recorded minutes before the major tremor.

AFAD and the Turkish Red Crescent have pitched 300 tents in a stadium and 120 others near the district governor’s office.

Bozkır Mayor Birsen Çelik said the earthquake demolished some houses but there were no serious injuries or deaths.

“The earthquake lasted more than 15-20 seconds. Several houses have been damaged. Some roofs collapsed and there are deep cracks in the walls,” she said.

The tremor was felt in the neighboring provinces of Antalya, Muğla, Isparta and Burdur, damaging houses and causing panic.

Mehmet Ali Çoban, a local resident, told reporters he was at work when the earthquake struck.

“When I came back home, I saw that my housewares were damaged, with some cracks in the wall,” he said.

Arzu Şentürk, another local, said she set up a tent in her yard on her own after the quake.

Authorities have warned citizens not to enter buildings which have been damaged

Crime / Nigerian Police Say No Ransom Paid For Turkish Hostages by sloye5(m): 12:03pm On Jul 28, 2019
No ransom was paid for the release of four Turkish hostages held for a week by a gang of armed men in Nigeria’s Kwara State, police said on July 26.

Police Commissioner Kayode Egbetokun said at a press conference that the expatriates were released "unconditionally."

"One member of the gang named Buba was nabbed in Gbugbu village with an AK47 rifle on Thursday, while another member involved in negotiating the ransom was nabbed on the morning of 26/07/19.

"These arrests put pressure on the remaining gang members to release the Turkish hostages unconditionally," he said.

While showing the freed men to journalists, he said the police are searching for the other gang members.

The Turkish nationals- Yasin Çolak (33), Şener Paşa (40), Ergün Yurdakul (35) and Seyit Emre Çelik (25) -immediately underwent a preliminary medical check-up at a police facility in Ilorin, the capital of Kwara State.

Turkish Ambassador to Nigeria Melih Ulueren said the nervous wait was finally over now that the hostages were back.

“We have been in contact with the Nigerian authorities since the beginning,” he said, thanking everyone involved for their efforts.

One of the freed hostages, Yasin Çolak, said they would rest in the daytime and move constantly under the cover of darkness at night.

“We had bread and water for a week. We sometimes ate things like watermelon we found in nearby fields…We are fine now. Thanks for the prayers,” he said.

Foreign Affairs / Governor’s Office Orders Syrians To Leave Istanbul For Their Registered Cities by sloye5(m): 8:44pm On Jul 23, 2019
The Istanbul Governor’s Office has ordered Syrian refugees initially registered in other provinces to return there by Aug. 20.

“A time until Aug. 20 has been given for foreigners of Syrian origin under temporary protection who are not registered in Istanbul (registered in other provinces) to return to the cities of their registration. Those determined not to have gone back will be transferred to the provinces of their registration in line with the instruction of our Interior Ministry,” said a statement released by the Istanbul Governor’s Office on July 22.

“Foreigners of Syrian origin who are not under temporary protection status (those unregistered and/or without identity cards), are transferred [from Istanbul] to the cities determined with the instruction of our Interior Ministry. Istanbul is closed to [any more] temporary protection registration,” said the statement.

“In our province, there are a total of 1,069,860 registered foreigners, 522,381 whom are foreign nationals with a residence permit and 547,479 Syrian guests under temporary protection,” the statement read.

Foreigners who have a “legal right to reside” in Istanbul have been urged to carry their passports or temporary protection identity cards at all times when they are outside so that they can show them during inspections by the police, said the statement.

“In our province’s bus stations, railroad terminals, airports and all transportation vehicles, inspections of [the] ‘Road Permission Document’ will be conducted continuously and Syrians guests under temporary protection status who do not have the valid document, will be sent to the provinces in which they are registered,” said the statement.

The statement also touched upon Turkish authorities’ fight against irregular migration, saying that undocumented migrants who entered Turkey by illegal means are initially detained and then deported.

“Work to fıght irregular migration, taken under the coordination of our Governor’s Office, are to continue nonstop in line with the essentials said above,” the statement said.
Foreign Affairs / It's Official Trump Says USA Won't Sell F35s To Turkey by sloye5(m): 5:14pm On Jul 17, 2019
President Trump has announced that the U.S. is going to halt sales of its F-35 stealth fighter jet to Turkey because the country received a new missile defense system from Russia – an exchange he claims was spurred by actions from the Obama administration.

Trump, speaking during a Cabinet meeting Tuesday, suggested the U.S. ended up in this scenario as a result of the past president’s administration imposing too many conditions for Turkey to purchase the U.S.-made Patriot missile system, an alternative to the Russian S-400 system they recently obtained, according to The Wall Street Journal.

U.S. officials previously have expressed concerns about Moscow’s potential intelligence gathering if Turkey came to be in possession of both the advanced American aircraft and the Russian missile-defense technology.
Travel / EU Slaps Sanctions On Turkey Over Drilling Of Cyprus(pic) by sloye5(m): 7:48am On Jul 16, 2019
BRUSSELS - European Union foreign ministers on Monday turned up the pressure on Turkey after approving an initial batch of sanctions against the country over its drilling for gas in waters where EU member Cyprus has exclusive economic rights.

The ministers said in a statement that in light of Turkey's "continued and new illegal drilling activities,'' they were suspending talks on an air transport agreement and would call on the European Investment Bank to “review'' it's lending to the country.

They also backed a proposal by the EU's executive branch to reduce financial assistance to Turkey for next year. The ministers warned that additional "targeted measures'' were being worked on to penalize Turkey, which started negotiations to join the EU in 2005.

Turkey's Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu issued his own warning last week that his country would step up drilling activities off Cyprus if the EU moved ahead with sanctions.

Two Turkish vessels escorted by warships are drilling for gas on either end of ethnically divided Cyprus.

The EU ministers repeated the "serious immediate negative impact'' that Turkey's illegal actions are having on EU-Turkey relations and called on Ankara to respect Cyprus' sovereign rights in line with international law.

They also welcomed the Cypriot government's invitation to Turkey to negotiate the borders of their respective exclusive economic zones and continental shelf.

Turkey doesn't recognize Cyprus as a state and claims 44% of Cyprus' exclusive economic zone as its own, according to Cyprus government officials. Turkish Cypriots in the east Mediterranean island nation's breakaway north claim another 25%.

Cyprus was split along ethnic lines in 1974 when Turkey invaded in the wake of a coup by supporters of union with Greece. A Turkish Cypriot declaration of independence is recognized only by Turkey, which keeps more than 35,000 troops in the breakaway north. Cyprus joined the EU in 2004, but only the internationally recognized south enjoys full membership benefits.

Turkey contends that it's protecting its rights and those of Turkish Cypriots to the area's hydrocarbon deposits. Cypriot officials, however, accuse Turkey of using the minority Turkish Cypriots in order to pursue its goal of exerting control over the eastern Mediterranean region.

You can’t blame China for trying to develop and create something good for its citizens. The US and it’s allie keep acting like the POLICE of the world ; placing sanctions , fines, ban etc on countries and institutions all across the globe. That’s the main reason why the Chinese govt want its people to be independent and have their own platform designed for their citizens. And when you talk about culture , they have the right to choose what the foundation of their culture would be ; which is respect . The same US govt is the one spending billions of dollars on building surveillance drone and military weapons , and yet they don’t want other countries to have the same . It’s just mere greed on the US govt part

usa is not the only country that always use sanctions even china just placed sanctions on some USA defense companies for selling weapons to Taiwan.all countries use sanctions.
Foreign Affairs / Re: Huawei In Preparation To Lay Off Hundreds Of US Workers (photos) by sloye5(m): 4:37pm On Jul 15, 2019

Whether China needs to be fair or not, the evidence does not support your claim that the ban hurts China more.

It was American companies that lobbied against the ban claiming it hurts them more. America farmers are crying because there's no buyer for their soybean. The ban itself has been ramped down because America needs Huawei tech. And instead of companies relocating to America they are going to countries close to China because the need Chinese supply chains.

wrong america dont need huawei tech and there are lots of evidence that shows the ban hurts china more and again verizon just tested their 5g network so the race is ON
Foreign Affairs / Re: Huawei In Preparation To Lay Off Hundreds Of US Workers (photos) by sloye5(m): 3:33pm On Jul 15, 2019
The ban hurts china more than the usa,china need to be fair on trade and open up their large market.Chinese would come to africa and dominate but you cant do the same in china,this is the last card the usa have to force china to open up their market to the world and now the usa just approved arms sales to taiwan.china must negotiate and be fair on trade because some countries are hurting from this trade war

Travel / Re: Turkey Takes Delivery Of Russian S-400 Missile System, Risks US Sanctions by sloye5(m): 12:26pm On Jul 13, 2019

It is not really his fault, Obama refused to sell the Patriot Missile to Turkey due to the US refused to transfer that technology to Turkey and they opted for Russia's Defence system.

I ask, is it not what they refused that Russia is willing to do? The world now has options in China and Russia for trade, politics and defence.

My 100 cents.

Correct but Obama did not sell to erdogan for some reasons and erdogans foreign policy is already drifting away from the west.The founding father of turkey pushed turkey to the west instead of East,Truth is erdogans policy is hurting turkey and the people are suffering and that's why after many years opposition party took over Istanbul and that was a direct message to ergodan because who ever controls Istanbul controls turkey

Erdogan is always fighting every body, from Germany to France to Greece to Cyprus and now he is illegally drilling in waters near Cyprus and EU would soon hammer him with sanctions and remember EU is Turkish largest trade partner not china and not Russia

Truth is you can't eat your cake and have it. It's simple S400 can not be integrated into NATO systems

Erdogan can't have the most advanced fighter jet in the world (F35) and still have the S400 because it would enable Russia gather some secrets about the F35s vulnerability and remember those planes were created because of Russia.

Erdogans foreign policy is zero and that's why they wanted to overthrow him and that's why I love the founding father of turkey. ATATURK..he gave women rights and so on

Erdogans stubborn foreign policy hurts the average turk on the street people are tired and the USA will hammer down sanctions now remember you can't go against almighty USofA erdogan tried it before and failed

Lastly only thing turkey mostly gain from Russia is tourism Russian tourist always flock here and if not for Atatürk and NATO there have been no Istanbul because Russia have always wanted to take back turkey because this place used to be the seat of the orthodox church and Russia is a big orthodox nation.
