We assume she wrote the article before Erdogan was asked in a TV interview about Berkin Elvan and effect of his funeral on foreign exchange rates.

The PM says “Turkey has moved on from those days [when things like this had an economic effect]. These things will pass by like the wind. They tried in the summer too but it [stock exchange] balanced itself. Because the foundation of Turkish economy is now safe.”

We wish he stayed totally silent about Berkin. We are ashamed of this man.
