The foreign policy followed by the government has finally revealed a "need for normalization"!
You see, they say that they are working to normalize relations with Egypt.
Then you see, they are taking action to normalize relations with the Gulf countries.
While trying to understand the reasons behind all this, you see that studies have been started to normalize relations with Israel! The same need is felt for EU countries as well. It is heard for Syria too! Those who shouted the slogan "Murderer Assad" yesterday are preparing to say "Our friend Assad" today.
It is possible to extend this list!
Efforts are being made to normalize relations with many countries that we cannot think of at the moment.
So, where did the need to normalize these relations come from?
This means that relations with many countries in our near and far surroundings have ceased to be normal.
So it's abnormal!
But wasn't there a policy of "zero problems with neighbors" in the first years of this power?
It was called that, but instead of resetting the problems as a result of the policies followed, the neighbors were reset!
We have no decent neighbors left!
Of course, we do not say that our government is the only responsible for the emergence of such a result.
Near and far neighbors have also made big mistakes.
But isn't foreign policy the art of taking precautions by anticipating such possible setbacks?
Those who first normalized relations with everyone are now in an effort to restore relations.
And they call it normalization.
In other words, in a way, they seem to say, "The foreign policy that we have pursued so persistently and stubbornly has gone bankrupt".
The situation of those who set out with the idea of ​​"zero problems" and are left alone with the reality of "zero neighbors" should be a lesson for everyone.
Because the expression of normalization is nothing but the declaration of the bankruptcy of the policy followed.
