BAKU - After being elected into another term in June 2018, President Erdogan of Turkey is getting ready to construct an ambitious new waterway on the European side of Istanbul. The canal will be the third megaproject in the city after a new continent-crossing bridge was completed in 2016 and the world’s largest airport will be finished by the end of the year. Yet, the government’s vision for a new canal also carries extensive geo-economic consequences for the Black Sea domain.

10 minutes of CaspianReport are worth more than 2 semesters of conventional education.

I'm confused. You know how to pronounce a crazy word like Küçükçekmece, yet you don't know the 'g' in Erdogan is silent. Great video btw!

I think you have a mistake. According to Montreaux, even with the canal, US can't keep its war ships in the Black Sea more than 21 days.

to the people asking "why would anyone pay to cross, when you can cross Bosporus for free" its the same principle of why would someone use a toll bridge, when there is another for free. you see the "free" crossing is over crowded, and has an incredibly long waiting time, to not wait, the wealthier people pay a fee to use toll bridges. and if they are using those bridges, then the traffic is lowered on the "free" bridge.

Thank you, this was highly informative. I appreciated the clear and straightforward treatment of maritime issues related to the Bosporus and civilian and military access to the Black Sea.

If it's viable, the question of finance does NOT arise.
