World - First army vehicles pull out of Turkey cities after coup bid

Turkey on Monday began pulling out tanks and other military vehicles from bases in its main cities in line with an order to move all barracks outside Istanbul and Ankara following the failed July 15 coup. Military barracks and bases on the outskirts of Ankara and Istanbul were one of the main hubs of the foiled coup, from where tanks and units of rebel soldiers moved in a bid to seize key positions in Turkey`s two main cities. In the first such pullout, a convoy of half a dozen military trucks hauling other military vehicles concealed by tarpaulins left the Bastabya base in Istanbul for the barracks of Corlu and Besiktepe in the northwest province of Tekirdag, AFP correspondents said.

World - Mega projects to help `build future of Istanbul`: minister

Turkey is seeking to `build the future of Istanbul` with a brace of ambitious projects including a third bridge spanning the Bosphorus Strait linking Europe and Asia, Transport Minister Ahmet Arslan told AFP. The bridge -- once hailed by President Recep Tayyip Erdogan as `star project` and due to open on Friday -- is only one of the grandiose projects aimed at modernising the face of Istanbul and transforming the city of 16 million people. A former mayor of Istanbul, Erdogan has often boasted of pet mega projects under his rule that also include a new airport and even a Panama-style canal to relieve pressure from the Bosphorus.

World - Turkey to take more active role on Syria in next six months, PM says

By Humeyra Pamuk ISTANBUL (Reuters) - Turkey will take a more active role in addressing the conflict in Syria in the next six months to prevent the war-torn country being divided along ethnic lines, Turkish Prime Binali Yildirim said on Saturday. Yildirim also told a group of reporters in Istanbul that while Syrian President Bashar al-Assad could have a role in the interim leadership, he must play no part in its future. Syria`s more than five-year conflict has taken on an ethnic dimension, with Kurdish groups carving out their own regions, and periodically battling groups from Syria`s Arab majority whose priority is to overthrow Assad.
