Insights into Turkish Domestic and International Politics

July — August, 2017

By John VanPool, EGF Turkey and Black Sea Regional Analyst

Key Points:

  • Germany hits back at Turkey, with ministers in Chancellor Angela Merkel"s government dissuading investments and travel to Turkey in an exercise of German economic leverage.
  • Turkey edges closer to completing a missile defense system purchase from Russia, raising the possibility of alienating NATO allies.
  • Turkish Stream Pipeline may face finance problems if U.S. sanctions signed by American President Donald Trump over Russia"s interference in elections are targeted at the southern gas corridor project.
  • Turkey has new leadership appointed and approved by the government for the navy, army and air force, a much needed peaceful transition that emboldens civilian control over the military.
