OCTOBER 3-10, 2017
CELEBRATING ONE YEAR OF THE TURKISH HERITAGE WEEKLY REVIEW
One year ago, we launched the Turkish Heritage Weekly Review, which brings the latest news in U.S.-Turkey relations straight to your inbox every week.

Our look and approach has evolved since we sent our first issue (access the full archive here ). To celebrate our one-year anniversary, we are launching a brand-new design.

We are committed to making this newsletter the very best it can be. As always, we welcome any feedback from our readership that can help us improve its content and design.

If you have any suggestions, you can send them to info@turkheritage.org.

Thanks for reading!

THO STATEMENT ON THE VISA CRISIS BETWEEN THE U.S. AND TURKEY
We urge U.S. and Turkish officials to reassess their differences through a new platform for diplomatic dialogue.

Turkish Heritage Organization (THO) is extremely concerned with abruptly announced travel restrictions by both governments and encourages both sides to exercise prudence. As longtime critical allies, regardless of the level of challenges, both governments should always maintain and engage in constructive discussion and diplomatic dialogue.
