Insights into Turkish Domestic and International Politics

September — November 2019

By Ben McPherson, EGF Turkey and Black Sea Regional Analyst

Key Points:

  • Regional upheaval as Trump withdraws US troops from Rojava, and Ankara takes quick advantage
    • The Trump administration, under strong bi-partisan pressure in Congress, whiplashes through various responses during Operation Peace Spring
    • Moscow and Ankara advance their role as key decision-makers in Syria
    • Confusing situation on the ground — how long will the ceasefire hold?
  • Turkish economy posts 0.9% growth in Q3
  • Ankara issues a forceful request to NATO about the YPG, as pre-condition for approving a defence plan in the Baltic Sea area
