Turkish doctor's perspective on c-section rates

A very interesting interview with Professor Atıl Yüksel, head of the Istanbul branch of the Turkish Society of Obstetrics and Gynecology, was reported by journalist Barçın Yinanç this week, in the Hürriyet Daily News. Well worth a read if you've been following cesarean developments in Turkey recently.
He gives answers to questions such as:

"Is there a problem with the high number of births by Caesarean section in Turkey?
Why is the rate of Caesarean births so high in Turkey?
Is Turkey’s new law regulating Caesarean sections a first in the world?
