The eventual appointment of a new ambassador to Turkey will certainly spark contentious hearings, even with the removal of Brunson’s detention as a point of conflict between the two allies. Issues such as Turkey’s purchase Russian S-400 missiles, sales F-35 jets to Turkey, Fethullah Gülen’s extradition from the United States, Syria, the Syrian Kurds, and now Iran sanctions and oil exploration in Cypriot waters, etc. guarantee that the appointment of a new U.S. ambassador to Turkey will result in a long and tense confirmation process.
