Ahmet Davutoglu - Newsweek
There’s a few interesting articles in Newsweek recently featuring Turkey.

Two of which features Turkey’s Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu. Davutoglu is the driving force behind Turkey’s new “self-confident” foreign policy, and has been nick named “Turkey’s Kissinger”.

There’s an article about the facts behind the man.
