MONGOLIA ON THE EVE OF THE 11TH ASIA-EUROPE MEETING (ASEM) & TURKISH-MONGOLIAN RELATIONS
As the name suggests, the Center for Eurasian Studies (AVİM) is a think-tank that focuses on the newly emerging concept of Eurasia, a region which stretches from the Atlantic to the Pacific. It is significant to underline that our understanding of ‘Eurasia’ is not synonymous with the one espoused by the President of the Russian Federation. As you may well know, from Russia’s point of view, its “Eurasian Union” encompasses the Post-Soviet Republics; Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Belarus as well as Ukraine. In this sense, our understanding of Eurasia diverges from that of Russia.
