A d,fferent angle on the repercussions of Kashoggi murder. It could lead to better relations between Turkey and US, says Kyle Orton of Ahval News.


For Turkey, comparisons with Saudi Arabia redound in her favour. The Turks have a vast and capable army, and the most strategic geography on the planet that allows the United States to project into the Middle East and to counter the Russians from the Balkans and the Black Sea to Central Asia. Turkey has the ability to help pacify areas liberated from ISIS of Syria, breaking the cycle that the YPG/PKK will perpetuate .
