In typical fashion, US President Donald Trump made a hasty and surprising decision this month by imposing sanctions on two Turkish ministers.

The move – based on Trumps belief that the two ministers were responsible for the detention of US pastor Andrew Brunson, who faces terrorism-related charges in Turkey – has caused the Turkish lira to fall sharply against the dollar.

In a bid to contain the crisis, Ankara dispatched a delegation headed by the deputy Turkish foreign minister to Washington, but negotiations were fruitless. Making matters worse, Trump vowed to double steel and aluminum tariffs on Turkey, pushing the lira down even further. Since last week, the lira has lost a quarter of its value.

Global repercussions

Turkey has close financial ties with the European Union and is considered to be a rising economic power. Exacerbation of its economic crisis will not only affect Turkey, but also reverberate globally; effects are already visible on European stock markets and the value of the euro.

It is not yet clear whether statements in support of Turkey by European leaders such as German Chancellor Angela Merkel, along with measures undertaken by Turkeys…

It is not yet clear whether statements in support of Turkey by European leaders such as German Chancellor Angela Merkel, along with measures undertaken by Turkeys central bank, will stop the liras hemorrhage. What is certain is that the Turkish economic crisis is multifaceted, and on the US side, a resolution is not likely anytime soon.

As Washington has rarely shown sufficient consideration for Turkish national interests, their bilateral alliance is far from stable

JEDDAH: Saudi Arabias transport minister, Nabil bin Mohammed Al-Amoudi, visited the Hajj halls at King Abdulaziz International Airport in Jeddah on Wednesday to ensure that work progress, performance efficiency and the pilgrims reception process are in line with the General Authority of Civil Aviation (GACA) operational plan.

The plan aims to simplify pilgrims travel procedures and provide them with optimum services.

During his visit, the minister also checked preparations for receiving Hajj delegations while ensuring the provision of high-standard services. The application of technology systems and electronic programs will also help simplify procedures.

Al-Amoudi praised the Makkah Road initiative, which has been implemented in phases by the Ministry of Hajj and Umrah, in collaboration with other government bodies, to make Hajj procedures easier for pilgrims arriving from Malaysia and Indonesia.

The initiative includes issuing visas, carrying out passport and customs procedures in the two countries, verifying health requirements, sorting luggage and providing bus transport to hotels in Makkah or Madinah.

The initiative also ensures the readiness of GACA by scheduling upcoming flights arriving at the airport, which simplifies entry procedures.

Streamlining of procedures is expected to reduce pilgrims waiting time from three hours last year to about 45 minutes this year. Al-Amoudi said that the improvements are the result of the directives and support provided by the Saudi government to all air, sea and land…
