SSİK: Why This Way? What Just Happened?

Gathered under the chairmanship of Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım on November 2, 2017, the Defence Industry Executive Committee (SSİK) embodied many firsts. Since the previous SSİK had met in October 2016, this SSİK will be remembered as the first and possibly the last gathering of 2017. Minister of National Defence Nurettin Canikli and Minister of Interior Süleyman Soylu attended this meeting for the first time.  

According to information received, the meeting did not involve exchange of ideas with respect to companies chosen for contract meetings. The press release for public consumption is rather composed of former decisions held in the past for various reasons. First of all; the language of announcement draws considerable attention. It is indeed the case that two statements contradict each other. Let us also underline that, in order to prevent misunderstandings, statements in press release are shown in capital letters: 
The first sentence of the release goes as; “DEFENCE INDUSTRY EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE GATHERED UNDER THE CHAIRMANSHIP OF OUR HONOURABLE PRIME MINISTER FOR THE PURPOSE OF DEBATING THE ITEMS ON ITS AGENDA AND TO MAKE DECISIONS ACCORDINGLY.” However, the release concludes with; “RELEVANT DECISIONS WERE MADE.” This explanation does not help us clarify which subjects were discussed at the SSİK meeting and on which subjects the decisions were made. Thus, it becomes harder to define the purpose of those decisions. On the other hand, the release conveys that 22 projects were brought to discussion. Afterwards, these projects are summarised in nine articles.
