    Chapter 4 analyses the Turkish responses to the EU narratives on the diversification of suppliers and routes. State and non-state actors are considered to be the Justice and Development Party (AKP), which has been the governing party since 2002, public authorities concerned with energy matters, opposition parties, think-tanks, representatives of the private sector and unions. This chapter begins with scrutinising the concept of energy security in various Turkish narratives and examines the Turkish actors’ positions on natural gas pipelines. Accordingly, it examines Turkish narratives on being an energy hub/energy terminal and discusses their positions regarding pipeline projects, such as the Trans Anatolian Pipeline and Turk Stream, and the developments in the Eastern Mediterranean. From a theoretical perspective, the chapter analyses the functioning of the primary institutions of security of supply, balance of power, great power management and modern sovereignty. Within this context, the AKP’s foreign policy and its linkage with the energy policy and Turkey’s relations with Russia are also scrutinised.
