Monday, March 27, 2023


The deadly tremors on February 6 have ushered in a period of calm in bilateral relations, and Ankara is signalling that it could lift its veto on NATO’s enlargement to Finland and Sweden. However, the United States is concerned about Turkey's Russia ties.

  • Both Democrats and Republicans in the US Congress remain sceptical of Erdogan and Turkish foreign policy.
  • Turkey will not cut ties to Russia, no matter who wins in the presidential and parliamentary elections.
