DEİK PRESIDENT NAIL OLPAK: "THE MAGNITUDE OF CONCERNS AND PREOCCUPATIONS SHALL BE DIMINISHED EVENTUALLY AS LONG AS DIALOGUE WITH USA WITHIN BROAD PERSPECTIVE IS SUSTAINED."
"The statement done by the US Embassy in Ankara regarding the suspension of visa applications filed in Turkey for an indefinite period of time should be perceived as a political move. The economic actors are therefore required to make intensive endeavours and vigorous efforts for this move not to have any adverse economical impacts. At this point, as being Turkish business world, without creating an expectation for an economical vulnerability, we are required to have a confidence in the political and economic policies implemented by our Government and act in accordance with the anchor economic decisions taken. We have faith that Turkey shall analyse and resolve all sorts of developments by means of diplomatic dialogues. We, as Turkish business world, are take sides with our Government in the decisions assessing our national priorities. The magnitude of concerns and preoccupations shall be diminished eventually as long as the dialogue with the USA within the broad perspective is sustained."
