But Ankara’s exposure to Russia on multiple fronts, its fraught relations with many of its traditional partners — particularly with the U.S., and its desire to continue what had become a flourishing engagement with Ukraine, present Turkey with difficult choices. The path Ankara chooses to follow will have serious implications for Turkey and the region » says Carnegie Endowment.
How will Ankara continue to navigate these challenging dynamics? Can Turkey bolster its standing among its Western Allies while preserving a functioning relationship with Russia?
