Climate change to be on agenda of Eurasian Economic Summit

While many international conferences in Turkey are being canceled due to recent terrorist attacks, the 19th Eurasian Economic Summit will go ahead as planned in Istanbul from April 5 to 7. In addition to terrorism and migration issues, climate change will also be debated by participants from a region rich in fossil fuels. 

Can this equation change?

A total failure: this is the current point we are at as far as the Syrian policy, based on the assumption that the Bashar al-Assad regime would be toppled in a matter of days when the turmoil started.

Let's recall: in those days, it was not enough for our rulers to be a regional power; we were about to take our place in the competition among global powers.
