The panel discussion will be related to Turkey’s foreign policy agenda prior to and during the new year. As such, it will refer to three important topics that  comprise crucial components of Ankara’s foreign policy for next year. These are: the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide; the Kurdish Question and its ramifications in the region (Turkey-Syria, Turkey-Iraq relations); and Turkey-Cyprus relations, which are also related to Turkey-Israel policy and Ankara’s energy interests in the eastern Mediterranean.
