The Foreign Relations Committee (DEİK) issued a comprehensive report on Turkey-China relations with an interesting title which goes, “The Dragon and the Crescent in the Asian Century.”
This report is one of the latest links in the interest in China that has distinctly increased with the mention of Turkey’s possible membership to the Shanghai Five.
I have witnessed that the interest in China is not only limited to political and economic circles. In a bookstore I frequently visit, I saw the book “Herkes İçin Çin Tarihi” (Chinese History for Everybody) in quite a few people’s hands. I joined them.
