With Trump gone and Turkey’s economy in crisis, the country’s strongman president is now trying to placate Western leaders rather than antagonize them. But how far can he be pushed?
The US president will meet several leaders “to highlight America’s commitment to restoring our alliances.”
NATO is powerful only with Turkey and without it, the alliance is not that strong, President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has said, citing Ankara as among the top five nations within the security institutions which is fully fulfilling all the NATO missions, in remarks ahead of the alliance’s summit in mid-June.
Interpol has been rejecting red notice requests by Turkey that it considers “political.”
Examining Turkey’s failure to execute the ECtHR judgement on Kavala, the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe has expressed its determination to “ensure the implementation through all means, including infringement proceedings.”
