Stephen Sackur talks to Otkay Vural, Deputy Chairman, Nationalist Action Party (MHP)l.

In the Turkish capital there is a sense of political frustration.

Membership talks with the EU are already in trouble, and violence in the Kurdish south east has renewed questions about human rights and the role of the army.

Otkay Vural is one of the leaders of Turkey's ultra-nationalist right.

Stephen Sackur talks to him about whether the resurgence of nationalism is at odds with Turkey's reform agenda.
