  • Erdogan to be sworn in as Turkey's new president

    Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan pictured at an extraordinary congress of the ruling AKP to choose a new party leader in Ankara on August 27, 2014Turkey's outgoing Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan was on Thursday set to be sworn in as president to extend his more than decade-long domination of the country. Erdogan was due to take his oath of office at 1100 GMT in Ankara and usher in a new era for Turkey, where he is expected to push for a new constitution and seek to further transform the country with development projects. Taking over Erdogan's post of prime minister is Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu, a long standing ally who is expected to do little to challenge the Turkish number one. The United States is only sending its charge d'affaires in Ankara.


  • Turkey's Erdogan consolidates power with ascent to presidency

    To match Special Report TURKEY-ERDOGAN/By Tulay Karadeniz ANKARA (Reuters) - Tayyip Erdogan will cement his position as modern Turkey's most powerful leader when he is sworn in as president on Thursday, advancing his drive to reshape the country but heralding what critics fear will be an increasingly authoritarian rule. In a final speech to supporters of his AK Party on Wednesday he spoke of his move from the prime minister's office to the presidential palace as the birth of a new Turkey. Erdogan's victory in Turkey's first popular presidential election this month caps more than decade as prime minister in which the economy has tripled in dollar terms and the country has carved out a growing, though often controversial, role in the politics of the conflict-torn Middle East. Erdogan's rhetoric has long played on the divisions between his supporters among Turkey's pious conservatives and a Western-facing, largely secular class suspicious of his Islamic ideals.

  • Indonesia, Australia sign deal to end spying row

    Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono (R) shakes hands with Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop before their bilateral meeting in Nusa Dua, Bali, on August 28, 2014Indonesia and Australia on Thursday signed an agreement aimed at drawing a line under a damaging espionage row and paving the way for the resumption of full cooperation on issues such as defence. Ties between the neighbours sank to their lowest point in years in November after reports that Australian spies tried to tap the phones of President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono and his inner circle. Jakarta recalled its ambassador from Canberra and suspended cooperation in several areas over the incident, including efforts to stop people-smuggling boats reaching Australia. Yudhoyono called for a code of conduct to govern behaviour and, after months of talks on the issue, Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop and her Indonesian counterpart Marty Natalegawa on Thursday signed an agreement.
