U.S.-Turkey relations: from meltdown to low simmer

A very important commentary from a veteran journalist:  White House  might be switching to a more patient approach towards Turkey:  For the moment, the heat is not melting down the saucepan, nor even boiling over the soup – we are back to a slow simmer on these issues. There are likely many reasons for this cooling of heated exchanges, one of the most likely is that the Trump administration realises that cooperation from Turkey regarding Iran, this administration’s stated pre-eminent concern, may be more forthcoming if other relatively less important matters are relegated to the back burner.
