What's to explain? You want my country to join a union with a bunch of dictatorships and failed states?
I’d say current government would fit the bill quite well. Considering how even Karamollaoglu refused offer to join RTE refering no accountability.

In fact I don’t see the current government as Turkish as they place islam before national interests.

Do you have to overstate? Can't you stay neutral? Objective? Turkey's economy and democratic constitution may be in a state of decline and there is no room for any excuses. Yet, it still can't be emphasized enough that the entire Turkic world is in decay, broken fragments, in pieces. Our problems are nothing compared to the current situation of the Turkic states.

News flash to our Pan-Turkists: Arab world = Turkic world. Same difference. Pretty much so.

Özbekistan = Soviet-style dictatorship
Türkmenistan = weird dictatorship
Kazakistan = usless dictatorship
Azerbaycan = friendly dictatorship
Kirgizistan = no good in nothing

All of them are poor, all of them are underdeveloped, all of them are corrupt, all of them are undemocratic, all of them are a pain in the ass of the people living in Central Asia, all of them will be a burden to Turkey.

In fact I don’t see the current government as Turkish as they place islam before national interests.

Yeah, yeah, we're on the internet and what you say may have fans here but the reality offline is different. Turkish nationalism and Islam are considered to be one idea that cannot be separated. This is not AKP's invention, though. This is pretty much what Kemalism and its concept of religion is, how Kemalists used Islam, what they thought Islam's position in the Turkish society should be, why they installed Diyanet and what the Kemalist vision of an average Turkish citizen was.

Get real - that's all I can say.

What kind of commercial advantages can the Organization of Turkish States bring?
Police Academy Lecturer Assoc. Dr. Levent Yılmaz: "Everything will change if the market for Turkmen and Kazakh oil is determined from Istanbul"
That would heavily rely on Turkey being Britain, versatile and strong never fucking with market powers and being reliable to a fault.

Though I have my doubt since the brexit ppl got their will

Turkey, Turkmenistan set on meeting trade target of $5B: Erdogan​


Turkey and Turkmenistan are determined to reach their bilateral trade volume target of $5 billion, the Turkish president said on Saturday in the Turkmen capital Ashgabat.

"We are determined to take the necessary steps to increase our trade volume to $5 billion, as planned," Recep Tayyip Erdogan said at a joint press conference alongside his counterpart Gurbanguly Berdimuhammadov.

The official visit came just weeks after Turkey hosted Berdimuhammadov as an observer at an Organization of Turkic States summit in Istanbul -- the first time a Turkmen president attended a meeting of the body, formerly known as the Turkic Council.

"As part of our brotherly relations, we will continue to support Turkmenistan and its strategy of neutrality, which it pursues successfully," Erdogan said, adding that during their meeting, the two leaders discussed all aspects of ties between the two countries "based on brotherhood".

"We exchanged views on what we can do to improve our cooperation in the field of energy, as well as land and air transport," he went on to say.

As part of their strategic cooperation based on historical and cultural partnership, the two countries agreed to accelerate their relations in such fields as education, culture, youth, and sports, Erdogan said, also noting that he and Berdimuhammadov had signed a joint declaration of nine articles that further strengthened their countries' ties.

Erdogan also congratulated the 30th anniversary of Turkmenistan's independence.

He underlined that Ankara was the first country to recognize the country's independence and open an embassy in its capital.


Order of Turkmenistan

Following the joint press conference, President Erdogan was awarded the Order of Turkmenistan.

Thanking the Turkmen leader for the distinction, he said the order was "a concrete manifestation of our developing relations in every field on the basis of mutual respect, understanding and common interests."

Erdogan will attend the 15th Leaders' Summit of Economic Cooperation Organization (ECO) slated for Sunday, which will be headed by Berdimuhammadov.

The Turkish president is also expected to hold bilateral talks with the leaders of some of the organization's member countries and hand over its term presidency to Turkmenistan.

Erdogan's accompanying delegation includes Turkey's ministers of energy and natural resources, national defense, education, agriculture, and transportation and infrastructure.

Workgroups on history, education, economy, freedom of movement and labor, security will be formed. The single currency is also on the agenda. The declaration probably won't be a full union declaration but rather a declaration of forming workgroups that will pave the way for an EU-like union.
according to what? Also we didn't see something related to security or single currency.
