Turkish leaders frustrated with Tehran's nuclear vacillation

Ankara faces a critical test as the row over Iran's nuclear programme continues to dominate debate within the international community.

ISTANBUL //Turkey's leaders are getting increasingly frustrated with what they see as either the unwillingness or inability of the regime in Tehran to come up with a consistent answer to the demands of the international community regarding its nuclear programme, diplomats say.

Istanbul rejects the the imposition of new sanctions against Iran, though pressure on Tehran increased this week as the US president, Barack Obama, said he was hoping that new sanctions would be imposed within weeks, rather than months. Turkey, which currently holds a non-permanent seat on the UN Security Council, says it has not decided how to vote if a resolution calling for new sanctions comes to the table. Iran says its nuclear programme has purely peaceful aims, but the West - and Turkey - suspect Tehran is trying to develop nuclear weapons.

As the largest Muslim member of Nato and with close relations to the West as well as to Middle East countries, Turkey sees itself as a potential regional leader and as an honest broker in political disputes. The row about the Iranian nuclear programme represents a critical test for Ankara's ambition. Differing sharply from their western counterparts, Turkey's leaders have publicly defended Iran's right to pursue a peaceful nuclear programme, pointing to Israel's unacknowledged nuclear weapons arsenal. "Are there nuclear weapons in this region? Yes, there are," Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the prime minister, told reporters in Ankara this week, referring to Israel. "But are there any sanctions? No, there are not."

Mr Erdogan renewed his rejections of sanctions, reflecting Ankara's concern that they could hurt Turkey as well. Iran and Turkey share a border of almost 40km, and Iran is Turkey's most important supplier of natural gas after Russia. "I think we will be able to find a solution" to the nuclear row without having to resort to sanctions, Mr Erdogan added. But behind public statements calling for compromise and restraint lies a growing sense of disappointment with Iran's conduct in its negotiations with the international community, represented by the five permanent members of the UN Security Council, Britain, China, France, Russia and the United States, as well as Germany.

"Everyone is getting frustrated," said a high-ranking Turkish diplomat, who spoke on condition of anonymity. "That frustration is reaching Turkey as well." The diplomat said there was a feeling that the Iranians are "wasting our time". Mr Erdogan is also getting impatient, the diplomat said. Turkish diplomats dealing with the Iran issue say one of the difficulties is that internal divisions in Tehran make it hard to fathom who is having the last word and what the final Iranian position is.

Abdullah Gul, Turkey's president, was quoted by Forbes magazine last week as saying he believes the Iranians really are after a nuclear bomb and that this would trigger an arms race in the region. He added it was unlikely that Iran would use such a device and that he had warned Iran's leaders against "problems" that Iran would face if they start to act in an "irrational manner". Ankara has invested a considerable amount of prestige in its unique role in the nuclear row, offering its territory as a place to store Iranian uranium in a possible deal between Tehran and the international community. But Iran has rejected such a compromise.

"There was a deal, and they didn't take it," the diplomat said. In February, Ahmet Davutoglu, Turkey's foreign minister, travelled to Tehran. According to press reports, Mr Davutoglu asked the Iranians to suspend nuclear enrichment, but nothing came of the initiative. Ankara's efforts to try to play a mediating role have triggered concerns in the West that Turkey may be turning away from its traditional western outlook.

But Turkey rejects that interpretation. "Behind closed doors, we have been conveying the same messages as our western partners," the diplomat said. "We believe we are more credible if we do it that way." Despite recent tensions with the United States over the question of the Armenian genocide, Mr Erdogan has hinted that he will travel to a conference in Washington on nuclear security in two weeks.

"Everybody is trying their best to convince Iran to address the nuclear issue, and Turkey is doing its share as well," the Turkish diplomat stressed. "We do hope that Iran understands that there has to be some positive development." tseibert@thenational.ae

10 tips for entry-level job seekers
  • Have an up-to-date, professional LinkedIn profile. If you don’t have a LinkedIn account, set one up today. Avoid poor-quality profile pictures with distracting backgrounds. Include a professional summary and begin to grow your network.
  • Keep track of the job trends in your sector through the news. Apply for job alerts at your dream organisations and the types of jobs you want – LinkedIn uses AI to share similar relevant jobs based on your selections.
  • Double check that you’ve highlighted relevant skills on your resume and LinkedIn profile.
  • For most entry-level jobs, your resume will first be filtered by an applicant tracking system for keywords. Look closely at the description of the job you are applying for and mirror the language as much as possible (while being honest and accurate about your skills and experience).
  • Keep your CV professional and in a simple format – make sure you tailor your cover letter and application to the company and role.
  • Go online and look for details on job specifications for your target position. Make a list of skills required and set yourself some learning goals to tick off all the necessary skills one by one.
  • Don’t be afraid to reach outside your immediate friends and family to other acquaintances and let them know you are looking for new opportunities.
  • Make sure you’ve set your LinkedIn profile to signal that you are “open to opportunities”. Also be sure to use LinkedIn to search for people who are still actively hiring by searching for those that have the headline “I’m hiring” or “We’re hiring” in their profile.
  • Prepare for online interviews using mock interview tools. Even before landing interviews, it can be useful to start practising.
  • Be professional and patient. Always be professional with whoever you are interacting with throughout your search process, this will be remembered. You need to be patient, dedicated and not give up on your search. Candidates need to make sure they are following up appropriately for roles they have applied.

Brown rice: consume an amount that fits in the palm of your hand

Non-starchy vegetables, such as broccoli: consume raw or at low temperatures, and don’t reheat  

Oatmeal: look out for pure whole oat grains or kernels, which are locally grown and packaged; avoid those that have travelled from afar

Fruit: a medium bowl a day and no more, and never fruit juices

Lentils and lentil pasta: soak these well and cook them at a low temperature; refrain from eating highly processed pasta variants

The Melbourne Mercer Global Pension Index

The Melbourne Mercer Global Pension Index

Mazen Abukhater, principal and actuary at global consultancy Mercer, Middle East, says the company’s Melbourne Mercer Global Pension Index - which benchmarks 34 pension schemes across the globe to assess their adequacy, sustainability and integrity - included Saudi Arabia for the first time this year to offer a glimpse into the region.

The index highlighted fundamental issues for all 34 countries, such as a rapid ageing population and a low growth / low interest environment putting pressure on expected returns. It also highlighted the increasing popularity around the world of defined contribution schemes.

“Average life expectancy has been increasing by about three years every 10 years. Someone born in 1947 is expected to live until 85 whereas someone born in 2007 is expected to live to 103,” Mr Abukhater told the Mena Pensions Conference.

“Are our systems equipped to handle these kind of life expectancies in the future? If so many people retire at 60, they are going to be in retirement for 43 years – so we need to adapt our retirement age to our changing life expectancy.”

Saudi Arabia came in the middle of Mercer’s ranking with a score of 58.9. The report said the country's index could be raised by improving the minimum level of support for the poorest aged individuals and increasing the labour force participation rate at older ages as life expectancies rise.

Mr Abukhater said the challenges of an ageing population, increased life expectancy and some individuals relying solely on their government for financial support in their retirement years will put the system under strain.

“To relieve that pressure, governments need to consider whether it is time to switch to a defined contribution scheme so that individuals can supplement their own future with the help of government support,” he said.

The index highlighted fundamental issues for all 34 countries, such as a rapid ageing population and a low growth / low interest environment putting pressure on expected returns. It also highlighted the increasing popularity around the world of defined contribution schemes.

“Average life expectancy has been increasing by about three years every 10 years. Someone born in 1947 is expected to live until 85 whereas someone born in 2007 is expected to live to 103,” Mr Abukhater told the Mena Pensions Conference.

“Are our systems equipped to handle these kind of life expectancies in the future? If so many people retire at 60, they are going to be in retirement for 43 years – so we need to adapt our retirement age to our changing life expectancy.”

Saudi Arabia came in the middle of Mercer’s ranking with a score of 58.9. The report said the country's index could be raised by improving the minimum level of support for the poorest aged individuals and increasing the labour force participation rate at older ages as life expectancies rise.

Mr Abukhater said the challenges of an ageing population, increased life expectancy and some individuals relying solely on their government for financial support in their retirement years will put the system under strain.

“To relieve that pressure, governments need to consider whether it is time to switch to a defined contribution scheme so that individuals can supplement their own future with the help of government support,” he said.

How the UAE gratuity payment is calculated now

Employees leaving an organisation are entitled to an end-of-service gratuity after completing at least one year of service.

The tenure is calculated on the number of days worked and does not include lengthy leave periods, such as a sabbatical. If you have worked for a company between one and five years, you are paid 21 days of pay based on your final basic salary. After five years, however, you are entitled to 30 days of pay. The total lump sum you receive is based on the duration of your employment.

1. For those who have worked between one and five years, on a basic salary of Dh10,000 (calculation based on 30 days):

a. Dh10,000 ÷ 30 = Dh333.33. Your daily wage is Dh333.33

b. Dh333.33 x 21 = Dh7,000. So 21 days salary equates to Dh7,000 in gratuity entitlement for each year of service. Multiply this figure for every year of service up to five years.

2. For those who have worked more than five years

c. 333.33 x 30 = Dh10,000. So 30 days’ salary is Dh10,000 in gratuity entitlement for each year of service.

Note: The maximum figure cannot exceed two years total salary figure.

1. For those who have worked between one and five years, on a basic salary of Dh10,000 (calculation based on 30 days):

a. Dh10,000 ÷ 30 = Dh333.33. Your daily wage is Dh333.33

b. Dh333.33 x 21 = Dh7,000. So 21 days salary equates to Dh7,000 in gratuity entitlement for each year of service. Multiply this figure for every year of service up to five years.

2. For those who have worked more than five years

c. 333.33 x 30 = Dh10,000. So 30 days’ salary is Dh10,000 in gratuity entitlement for each year of service.

Note: The maximum figure cannot exceed two years total salary figure.
