Turkey and Black Sea Security: Ten Years After the War in Georgia

Source:Atllantic Council Date:09Aug2018

Turkey’s double act between Russia and NATO is warign thin.  Note the line:  Turkey, however, is at best a fellow traveler rather than an ally of Russia.



Erdogan has turned foreign policy into a transactional  game, where national interest is traded for  ballot box gains and ideology.  Turkey has no credibility abroad.  Its threats  of migrating to  Russian orbit in case of Brunson sanctions by America is not to be taken seriously.
