Recep Tayyib Erdogan`s statement on the eve of the centenary of the Turkish Republic is indicative of the fact that something revolutionary will happen after 2023. He said Turkey would shape the future of the entire region if it met its 2023 targets. Turkey has achieved new victories and successes, he added. In September 1984, after years of negotiations, the British and Chinese signed a formal agreement authorizing the re-island to China in 1997, in exchange for China`s promise to maintain Hong Kong`s capitalist system, and on July 1, 1997, Hong Kong was officially ceded to China, which included a series of high-ranking Chinese and British personalities. , the head of the new government in Hong Kong Tung Chee Hwa , has established a policy based on the concept of “one country, two systems” that retains the role of Hong Kong as a major capitalist center in Asia. With the expiry of this century-old treaty in 2023, Turkey will itself enter a new era by drilling oil and dug up a new canal linking the Black Sea to the Marmara Sea to recover the costs of passing ships. This seismic evolution, combined with Turkey`s recent military adventurism, suggests that the geographical contours of the region will certainly undergo a gigantic metamorphosis after the end of the Treaty of Lausanne. The international community has begun to pay more attention to Turkey`s efforts, particularly towards the expiry of the Treaty of Lausanne. Under international law, any contract expires after 100 years and Erdogan wants to link the expiration of the treaty in 2023 to the current situation in Mosul, northern Iraq, and Raqqa and Afrin in Syria. Mohamed Abdel-Kader Khalil, an Egyptian expert on Turkish affairs, said: “Turkish foreign policy in the Middle East is linked to the use of Turkish military capabilities in the region. This is reflected in Turkish military concentrations on the borders of Iraq and Syria and in its participation in the Red Sea through an agreement on the island of Sawken, Sudan, as well as by the Turkish military intervention in the northern Syrian town of Afrin. And how are the current great powers responding to Turkish demands? We will see wars before 2023, and who will lead this change And by 2023, the period of the treaty, which has passed a hundred years, will end, and that is where we understand Erdogan`s comments, since Turkey will enter a new era, and begin with oil exploration and drilling of a new canal connecting the two black seas and marmara to prepare for the imposition of taxes on passing ships. Over the past century, especially in the last ten years, Turkey has become a somewhat hegemonic power in the region, with Iran being the only rival to influence and Israel its only rival in military power.
His proactive attitude in the Syrian conflict – through his famous “Euphrates Shield” and his current Olive Branch operation – has allowed the country to once again become a regional power that can be considered a military, economic and diplomatic leader.
