"THE MOST IMPORTANT EVENT FOR TRUMP IS THE MIDDLE EAST.THE MIDDLE EAST`S DESTINY IS CLOSELY RELATED WITH TURKEY TIES "
In the second part of his talk, Dr. Erol User talked about the elections in the USA. User continued: "Trump won the elections, although he delivered splitting rhetoric on masses. He won the election by taking the votes of the middle age class. Trump was a big success against Hillary Clinton. Clinton's statist and status quo political approach was the reason of her elections lose. The US is a system state. No one can change this system. Individuals can only make certain moves and directions, as long as the system allows them. The most important event for Trump is the Middle East. The Middle East`s destiny is closely related with Turkey ties. The relations with Turkey will be stronger. The President Recep Tayyip Erdogan will give importance to these ties as he is the strongest leader in the region. Firstly ISIS will be cleared. For PYD cleansing, this will be possible until the beginning of summer, with the cooperation of Russia and the approval of the United States. "
"YOU HAVE TO INFORM TURKISH BUSINESSMEN ABOUT THE OPPORTUNITIES HERE. A LOGISTICS CENTER CAN BE ESTABLISHED HERE ALSO. "
After making some observations about Turkey, Mr. User added: "Turkey's major roles. Turkey should appear as a secular, modular, libertarian Muslim democracy. As for the solution proposals, regional problems must be resolved like the Middle East ones. The income inequality should be corrected. Developed states must come together to create a new order. As President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said, "The world is bigger than five." We must interlock with each other. We are from Turkey, you are from Komotini. We must carry out European synergy and our fertility. You have to inform the Turkish Businessmen about the opportunities of your region. For example, it can be established a logistics center here. It is necessary to make investments for the industry and to provide employment. We should stop jealousy among us. I drank a Turkish coffee in Komotini today so I will remember it for forty years” he concluded.
After the meeting, Businessman Levent Sadik Ahmet and Turkey's Consul General in Komotini Dr. Ali Riza Akinci Erol presented a plaque to Mr. User.
