Neo-Ottomans knock Morocco’s door for access to Africa

Observers say Turkey is trying to make use of Morocco’s geopolitical location to establish strategic ties with the North African country and through it gain access to the entire Black Continent. According to political experts, the “Neo-Ottomans” are interested in the rise of Islamists in several North African countries especially as the Arab Spring is paving the way for their access to power and they are keen on playing a role in seeing this materialize. The establishment of strong ties with those Islamist movements, they added, might also contribute to the possible victory of Turkey’s Islam-oriented Justice and Development Party in the upcoming parliamentary elections.
