  • For both NATO and the U.S., Turkey happens to play an active role on a multitude of fronts – whether it’s Russia and China, the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), or the Caucasus and Central Asia.

  • Erdoğan’s subsequent trip to Shusha, in turn, reflected the new realities of Turkish foreign policy.
