Activities: 2002: Abstract: Logoglu

December 4, 2002 Ambassador Faruk Logoglu

Ambassador O. Faruk Logoglu,
Ambassador, Embassy of the Republic of Turkey

Our distinguished guest speaker, Ambassador O. Faruk Logoglu, briefed the Executive Lecture Forum
on United States-Turkey relations and the Turkish role in the fight against international terrorism. If anybody in
the world understands the terrorist acts against the United States and the tragedy of September 11, said the Ambassador, it is the Turkish people, since Turkey has suffered from terrorism for more than 15 years.

In connection with Iraq, the Ambassador underlined that in a post-Saddam Iraq, the Kurdish, Arabic, and Turkish population should have
equal rights; and Iraq as a nation should be kept in the present geographical form. He also spoke about the Turkish-Israeli relationship.  He believes that the relationship between these two democracies, namely Turkey and Israel, is the guaranty of peace and stability in the Middle East. Interestingly enough, the Ambassador closed his remarks by saying that the Arab friends of Turkey are admitting this fact.
