“This is Erdoğan’s Turkey. Still, this is our neighbor and we are doomed to co-exist and to do so we must resolve our differences.

Turkey in 1974 numbered 38 million, today 84, in 2030 it will be 90. Demographically, it will be younger than all Western European countries. Luckily, Turkey is not only our neighbor and our problem to deal with. It is Europe’s problem,” writes George Pagoulatos in his article for the Sunday Edition of Kathimerini.
