The meeting’s outcome is often debated for days in the media to explore the decisions’ potential future consequences. This year’s YA held amid wildfires in 30 provinces, drew little attention.

After a mysterious 2016 military coup, the generals lost their minimal control over the country’s governance. President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s defense minister Gen.

Yaşar Güler, and other officers.
